How long does it take to register a trademark In Argentina?

It takes approximately 18 months to get a trademark registration in Argentina, provided that there are no third party oppositions or objections ex officio submitted by INPI. In the event of opposition or objection, the procedure can extend over several years. It has to be highlighted that in Argentina the INPI Objections may be based not only on absolute grounds for refusal but also on the grounds of similarity to an earlier trademark (relative grounds). This is not the case in Europe, where only the owner of each trademark can oppose against the registration of a sign that may lead to confusion.
