How to file an international application: Fees

The fees payable for an application for international registration may be calculated using the Fee Calculator. Fees must be paid in Swiss francs (CHF).

  • a basic fee;
  • a supplementary fee (depending on the number of classes of goods and services to be protected); and
  • complementary or individual fees depending on the designated contracting parties.

The basic fee is reduced to 10% of the prescribed amount for international applications filed by applicants whose country of origin is a least developed country, in accordance with the list established by the United Nations.
