Trademark Registration Fees Increased

The Saudi Trademark Office has officially increased the fees of trademark registration. The GCC TM Law and its Implementing Regulations had been published at the Official Gazette in Saudi Arabia (Um Al- Qura), issue No. 4625, on July 1st, 2016; pursuant to the Saudi Royal Degree No. M/51 dated April 26, 2014.

The new official fees as per below are applicable as of October 2, 2016:
Filing Fees USD 270/SAR 1,000
Publication Fees USD 800/SAR 3,000
Registration Fees USD 1,335/SAR 5,000

The official fees for filing and publication have remained unchanged whereas the registration fees have been increased from USD 800 to USD 1,335 USD.

It remains to be seen whether the fees increase will retroactively apply to the pending applications or if there are going to be changes concerning renewals, recordals. So far there has been no official notification in this regard yet.
