The main changes in the opposition process are as follows:
The Official Fees Increase
The Ministerial Decree has also announced an increase in the official fee for registration of trademarks in the Kingdom.
It is understood that the fees increase will apply to official fees for registration as well as renewal of trademarks. The official fees for filing the application, publication of the mark and availability searches will remain unchanged. The trademark registration in Saudi Arabia is already an expensive affair and with the current increase of the official registration as well the renewal fees to almost double will no doubt make it more expensive.
Details Of Increase
The increased official fees came into effect as of 1 October, 2016. It is remain to be seen if the increased fees will be applied to the existing applications which were filed prior to the effective date of increase or the issuance of the Ministerial Decree.
