Bahrain: E-Filing of Patents

The Patent Office in Bahrain announced that it will begin receiving and processing patent applications in electronic form.  The e-portal allows for the submission of application forms electronically along with soft copies of the required documents such as the power of attorney, assignment from inventors, and Arabic translation.

Other jurisdictions in the Arabian Gulf that previously implemented electronic filing for patent applications are Saudi Arabia, the regional office of the Gulf Cooperation Council, the United Arab Emirates, and most recently Qatar.
