New Payment Regime for Foreigners

The Iranian Trade Marks Office has changed the official fees payment regime in January 2013.

As per the new payment regime, the Iranian Trade Marks Office only accepts payment of official fees for foreign applicants in Euros or Swiss Francs.
In fact, there have been no structural fee changes, but applicants are required to pay the official fees based on the currency exchange rates on the payment day. As the Euro/Franc currency exchange rate is not fixed, the official fees will vary from time to time. The restrictions of international money transactions on Iranian banks have made the payment issue more difficult.
The implementation of the new payment regime will also be imposed on the registration fees for pending applications.
The official fees for Iranian applicants are still payable in local currency, Rials.
