    Example 1: One mark one class
    If you want to have your trademark "ABC" registered in Class 25 (clothing, footwear, headgear), that is, one mark one class, the total fees for trademark pre-filing search, registration request and certificate are:


    Pre-filing search: USD90
    Request for registration: USD1,200
    Final registration/Certificate: USD200
    TOTAL: USD1,490


    Example 2: One mark two classes
    If you want to have your trademark "ABC" registered in Class 25 (clothing, footwear, headgear) and Class 26 (lace and embroidery, ribbons and braid; buttons, hooks and eyes, pins and needles; artificial flowers), that is, one mark two classes, the total fees for trademark pre-filing search, registration request and certificate are:


    Pre-filing search: 90 + 60 = USD150
    Request for registration: 1,200 + 1,080 = USD2,280
    Final registration/Certificate: USD200
    TOTAL: USD2,630


    Example 3: Two marks one class
    If you want to have your trademarks "ABC" and "DEF" registered in Class 25 (clothing, footwear, headgear), that is, two marks one class, the total fees for trademark pre-filing searches, registration requests and certificates are:


    Pre-filing searches: 90 + 90 = USD180
    Request for registrations: 1,200 + 1,200 = USD2,400
    Final registrations/Certificates: 200 + 200 = USD400
    TOTAL: USD2,980


    The costs illustrated in the examples above are based on the assumption of a smooth application for word mark(s), that is, no objection being raised by the INDECOPI or any other third party.

If we have already filed an application and the application is objected by the INDECOPI or any other party or refused, there will not be any refunded of fees.
