Official Fees Increased and Re-structured

The Council of Ministers has issued their decision No. 178 for the year 2011 by which the official fees in respect of trademark and industrial designs services have been increased.

For trademarks:
The previously implemented sub-classes system has been withdrawn along with their respective extra charges, and the official fees must be paid at filing time instead of separating the fees on each stage respectively.
The total official fees from filing to registration have been increased by 150% compared to the old fees.

For industrial designs:
- Charges: The total official fees have increased to USD $200 instead of USD $170.
- Protection: The design is valid for 10 years and no annuity payments are required to sustain the application.
It is worth mentioning that previously, an industrial design was valid for 5 years, and renewable for 2 periods, each of 5 years, giving a total of 15 years of protection.

This decree was deemed effective from 26 September 2011.
