Where to file Vietnam trademark registration?

To register a trademark in Vietnam, you must file an application with the National Office of Intellectual Property (NOIP).

The Vietnam trademark registration application

The application must include the necessary information and documentation, such as the trademark image or word mark, the list of the goods or services that the trademark will be used for (according to the Vietnam classification system), and proof of the applicant’s identity…

The NOIP will then examine the application to determine whether the trademark is eligible for registration. If the trademark is eligible, the NOIP will publish the application in the Official Gazette for a period of 2 months. This gives other parties an opportunity to oppose the registration of the trademark.

If there is no opposition, the NOIP will register the trademark and issue a certificate of registration. The trademark will be valid for 10 years from the filing date. The registration can be renewed for an unlimited number of 10-year periods.
