The Indonesian government has issued Government Regulation No. 28 of 2019 specifying increases to the official fees for intellectual property filings, effective May 3, 2019.

The increases in official fees mostly concern patent prosecution. While the fee for filing a patent application remains unchanged, fees have increased for other patent prosecution tasks, such as for filing a request for substantive examination, filing a request for change of data in a patent application, filing a recordal of patent assignment, patent annuities, and others.

The regulation also introduced a new official fee of IDR 5 million (approximately USD 350) for filing a request for acceleration of substantive patent examination through the Patent Prosecution Highway.

For trademark and industrial design, the official fee for filing an application also remains unchanged. However, the official fees for filing a recordal of assignment and recordal of license agreement have increased to IDR 700,000 and IDR 1 million, respectively.
