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.
If you don’t have a place of residence or business in Taiwan, then you must designate an agent for the trademark registration who has a place of residence in Taiwan (Article 6 of the Trademark Act).
Valid for 10 years. Renewed 6 months before its expiration or 6 months after it with the additional fee.
Trademarks registered in the Republic of China is only protected in Taiwan.
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.
As of the time of this writing, Taiwan is not a member of any international trademark treaties.
Trademark applicants can jointly provide one power of attorney designating an agent when the application involves more than a single applicant. They also have the option to provide separate power of attorney while designating the same agent.
All additional documents provided should be translated into Chinese (Power of Attorney, priority documents, certificate of incorporation, etc.)
