Design

How much does it cost to register a design

In order to register a design, two types of fees must be considered: the fee of the application and the fee associated with the maintenance of the right.

The fee will vary depending on the type of register you wish to make. You can request the registration of a:
  • design in Portugal
  • design directly in countries where you want to protect design
  • design at EU level
  • international design.
