Deposit of Official Fees at Filing


As of January 2018 the Afghani Patent & Trademark Office (APTO) has started to collect filing, classification and registration official fees at the time of filing and prior to substantive examination for absolute and relative grounds noting that registration fees are non-refundable in case of rejection or opposition.

No changes have been introduced to the time of paying official publication fees which will be collected after examination and issuance of acceptance notification.

The official notification can be referred to here
