Trademark Registration in Laos

REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

Applications can be filed for registration of trademarks, service marks, collective marks and figurative marks. Like other countries, Laos adopts the International Classification of Goods and Services under the Nice Agreement. Multi-class applications are accepted in Laos.
Foreign individuals or entities can file trademark applications in Laos if they have legal presence in Laos, for example representative offices. Otherwise, applications must be filed through Lao trademark agents.
