Trademark and Patent

A trademark is a valuable tool that allows the owner to distinguish their products or services from those of others and to license the trademark for a fee. The trademark certificate is valid for ten years and can be renewed for another ten. This makes the trademark an important asset within Qatar. To register a trademark in Qatar, one must apply along with a company extract to the Intellectual Property Department-Trademark Office at the Ministry of Economy. If the company is foreign, the extract must be certified. 

Types of Trademarks
  • A word or design mark
