Trademark samples:

         Enterprises can choose to register a trademark sample in the black-and-white or colored trademark. However, currently show that black-and-white trademarks have a wider range of protection because they can be used as colors or black-and-white. Customers should pay attention to ensure the distinctiveness of the trademark, the trademark is not allowed to be identical or confusingly similar to the trademark of others.

  • A power of attorney to the representative of Viet An Law to apply;
  • Receipts of fee payment.

The application process stage:
