UAE: Increase in Official Fees

April 22, 2015

Pursuant to Ministerial Resolution no. 9 of 2015, the official fees for trademark matters have doubled almost across the board in comparison with their current level. The increase will also affect patent filings and title updates but annuity maintenance fees will not be subject to any change. The new rates will be effective as of May 29, 2015. It is highly recommended for trademark owners to immediately attend to any renewal due over the next 12 months at the existing rates prior to the increase.
