The trademark registration process in Hong Kong involves two examinations: a formal examination and an examination of distinctiveness with the overall duration from initial filing to registration typically around 4 to 12 months. Prior to registration, the trademark application was published in the “Hong Kong Intellectual Property Journal.” The period for opposition to the registration lasts for 3 months starting from the publication date of the application.
