In this paper we propose generalized multi-phase multivariate ratio estimators in the presence of multiauxiliary variables for estimating population mean vector of variables of interest. Some special cases have been deduced from the suggested estimator in the form of remarks. The expressions for mean square errors of proposed estimators have also been derived. The suggested estimators are theoretically compared and an empirical study has also been conducted.
