Foreign applicants need a domestic registration.
The application process includes a formal examination, an examination of distinctiveness and a search for prior trademarks. Signs not deemed distinctive in the examination can be registered if distinctiveness has been acquired by use.
The current processing time from first filing to registration of a trademark is about 3 years.
Before registration every trademark application accepted by the Registrar will be published in the “Trademarks Journal”.

The opposition period is 2 months from the date of the advertisement of an application for registration.
