Under the transitional provisions of the bill, the proprietor of existing Tongan registrations based on United Kingdom registrations has twelve months from the date of enactment of the legislation within which to apply for re-registration under the new Act. Such re-registrations will be given the priority of the old registrations upon which they are based. More details
However, the current Tongan application requirements under their present Act are as follows:
1. A simply signed power of attorney.
2. A certified copy of the UK registration.
3. Ten prints of the trademark.
