Our professional trademark attorney in Vietnam will prepare and file your trademark for registration at the Trademark Office. Vietnam is a "first to file" country thus, the one who files a trademark first has the right to use it. Trademark protection is obtained by registration.

In Vietnam well known trademarks are protected without any registration procedures. If a well-known trademark is recognized according to civil procedures or under a decision of the National Office of Intellectual Property, that well-known trademark shall be included in the list of well-known trademarks.

Vietnam is a member of WIPO since 1976. Also, Vietnam is a member of the Madrid Agreement since June 25, 1939 and the Madrid Protocol since July 11, 2006.

With 30,000 trademark applications filed each year, only 12.000 are filed by foreign applicants, and 1.700 are filed abroad. It demonstrates the understanding of how important the trademarks are for local businesses. You can access additional information regarding IP statistics in Vietnam here.

Vietnam applies the first-to-file system. Where two or more applications are filed by many different owners for registration of the same mark, the registration may be granted to the valid application with the earliest priority or filing date among applications that meet all requirements.

Registration Procedure

A straightforward trademark registration process takes 12 months. Our attorney will file your trademark within 7 business days, after receiving the required details and documents. An application filed with the National Office of Intellectual Property goes through the formality examination.

The time frame for the examination of an application is one month from the filing date.

After the formality examination is completed the NOIP sends a notice of acceptance of a valid application, or a notice of intended refusal (with a request to correct mistakes).

Within 2 months from the date the application is accepted, it will be published in the Industrial Property Official Gazette for opposition. An additional fee should be paid for such publication.

The next stage is the substantive examination. The purpose of the examination is to determine the eligibility of objects claimed in the application under the requirements.

The examination will be performed by examiners within 6-9 months from the date of publication.

Within 10 days after acceptance the applicant pays the registration fees, the NOIP issues the Mark Registration Certificate.

The Certificate should be recorded in the National Register of Marks and the decision on granting the mark registration should be published in the Industrial Property Official Gazette within 2 months from the date of issuance.

 

Fees: How Much Will it Cost?

A trademark registration is valid for 10 years from the date of application.

The registration is renewable for periods of 10 years.

If the trademark has not been used within 5 years from registration any interested party may petition for cancellation.

If a mark has not been used for 5 years and no cancellation action is taken against it, in this case, the mark is protected.
