No, it is not mandatory to obtain your trademark in your domicile first.

It is entirely up to you where you wish to register your trademark and protect your brand. If, for example, you do not sell any products in your home country, you do not have to register there at all.

You can register your trademark anywhere in the world, no matter where you live or where you are from. However, in most cases, you'll need legal representation to file your trademark on your behalf. You can hire an attorney, law firm or a specialized online service such as Trama to represent you in the trademark proceedings.
