Legalized Power of Attorney and Supporting Documents Not Required by Bahrain

Angel A. (Feb 05, 2014)

The Kingdom of Bahrain announced that legalization of Power of Attorney and other supporting documents required for all Intellectual Property (IP) related matters would no longer be required. The Bahraini consulates abroad will no longer provide legalization services for documents if the applicant’s country is a member of the Hague Convention (October 5, 1961). 

This decision came as a result of Bahrain’s accession to the Hague Convention (October 5, 1961) abolishing the requirements of legalization of foreign public documents, and it entered into force as from December 31, 2013. 

Accordingly, the apostille documents are sufficient for filing with the Industrial Property Office and the Patent Office in Bahrain.
