The legal protection of a registered trademark begins from registration date. A registration is valid for 10 years calculating from the accepted filing date of the application and can be renewed for subsequent 10 years term, ad infinitum.
A request for renewal must be filed within six (6) months prior to its expiration date. Late payment of renewal fees is available within a six months grace period with surcharge of 10% of maintenance fee (maintenance fee is VND100.000 per class of goods/services (for trademark), per independent claim (for patent), or per embodiment (for design)) for each month overdue.
