Official Fees Increased

The Presidential Decree no. 62/20 authorising the increase of the official fees relating to the filing and prosecution of trademarks, patents, design and utility models in Angola.

However, the new fees were due to enter into force on March 20, 2020, but as a consequence of the state of emergency declared following the Covid-19 outbreak, the fees have been suspended until further instructions are issued by the Angolan Industrial Property Office.

One of the more noteworthy changes specifically relating to trademark applications are that all fees (including filing, 1st and 2nd publication fees, as well as grant fees for the issuance of registration certificates) are to be paid upfront.

At this stage it is unclear how this will effect current applications (i.e. those filed up to 19 March 2020), specifically regarding the issuance of registration certificates and the payment of grant fees.
