Well, one can apply for a foreign patent application only after a certain period of applying in their country. If you reside in the US, then you should first apply for the patent in the United States. You should file your patent applications in other countries within 1 year of your domestic filing date. Alternatively, you can also file a PCT application within a year and thereby have additional 18 months’ time to decide which country you may wish file the application.
You get the right to be granted permission for a delay of 30 months before you file the application separately in every PCT country where you are seeking to get a patent right. Signed by various industrialized nations, the Patent Cooperation Treaty is an international treaty. It makes your task of filing patent applications easy and smooth and increases your success chance.
As far as the filing date is concerned, it tends to extend to each country that signed the treaty. It simplifies the overall procedure of the treaty. And finally, you will get a separate application in every targeted country where you need protection. Meanwhile, the international patent search also works great in decreasing the cost incurred in the entire process of filing an application.
