Kuwait: New Requirements for Trade Name Registration in Arabic


KUWAIT – Pursuant to the Ministerial Decision No. 4 of 2022, related to the registration of trade names in Arabic, it is possible to register a trade name in Kuwait in both Arabic and Latin characters. The Latin name should be synonymous with the Arabic translation or a direct transliteration of that name. 

In light of this new decision, a brand owner may consider many translation options based on the intended meaning of the word under consideration, as a trade name of a foreign language may have many translations in Arabic, because of the characteristics of Arabic language vocabulary.
