Trademark Registration in Taiwan


Taiwan adopts a "first-to-file" trademark system. To gain exclusive right protections for your products and services in Taiwan, it is recommended to register your trademark in Taiwan. We have made the process and procedure simple and often can have trademarks applied within 24 hours of receiving the required documents and fees.

Registration duration and renewal

Valid for 10 years. Renewed 6 months before its expiration or 6 months after it with the additional fee.

Territory principle

If your trademark is a combination of a symbol and words then if approved the exclusive right will be given for a trademark’s exact combination. If you wish to use its elements separately, you must separately apply for trademarks that contain only its components.

International protection
