Procedure of Portugal Trademark Registration
The Portugal application process includes a formal examination, an examination of distinctiveness and a search for prior trademarks. It takes approximately 6-8 months from first filing to registration. Before registration the trademark application is published in the Portuguese Industrial Property Gazette for opposition purposes. When the Portugal opposition phase comes to an end (or an opposition is filed) the application is submitted to an examination. Afterwards, the final notification is issued. The registration of the trademark is published as well. The opposition period is 2 months from publication of the Portugal opposition, extendable for an additional month. After the end of said term, late Portugal oppositions will not be accepted.

Once your Portugal trademark has been accepted, and presuming no third party objects to your registration during the standard three month opposition period, your logo will become registered for a period of ten years from the date of filing. The Portugal Trademark registration is renewable for periods of 10 years.
