3. A Power of Attorney notarized and legalized by the Lebanese Consulate. The original is required by mail.

4. Authorization letter duly notarized and legalized by the Lebanese Consulate (if the applicant does not have a legal local presence in Lebanon). The original is required by mail.

Notes:

- To register a domain name in the Lebanese Domain Registry LB-DOM, it is mandatory to trademark the exact domain name that the applicant is requesting at the Lebanese IP Protection Office under class 35. The trademark certificate should reflect the exact domain name in Latin characters, covering the Internet advertising and use in class 35. For (XYZ.com.lb), the trademark “XYZ” should be registered.

- The company owning the domain name must have a legal local presence in Lebanon, practicing in Lebanon, and have a number in the commercial registry. If this condition is not available, then the only way to achieve registration is by a specific authorization to register the domain name in the name of a local legal entity, this would be our firm after signing a special trust agreement.
