Qatar – National Phase of PCT Applications
Although Qatar had joined the PCT since May 3, 2011, and that it could have been designated in International Applications filed on or after August 3, 2011, still it seems not possible to enter PCT applications into the national phase in this country.
Qatar has enacted a patent law since 2006. However, the patent office is yet to be operational. We are following the progress of this matter closely in Qatar and will advise our clients of any new developments in a timely manner.
