Invoke priority

If you want protection in other countries within six months of your first application (e.g. Benelux application), you can claim what is called ‘priority’. This means that subsequent applications (whether for national, International or Community trademarks) acquire the same protection dates as your initial application. 

You can claim priority for all countries that are members of either the Paris Convention or the World Trade Organization. In practical terms, this means nearly every country in the world.
