FAQs
Q1. Term required for filing a patent application in Oman?
The patent registration process takes 4-5 years. After 18 months from the filing date, the application will be formally examined to check if all the required documents were submitted and will issue a decision of: o Incomplete formalities: the Examiner will give the applicant 60 days from the official notification date to fulfill all requirements, otherwise the application will be considered withdrawn. o Complete formalities: the applicant can settle the substantive examination fees at the time of filing or at any time within the 18 months form the filing; otherwise the application will be lapse.
Q2. What is the Duration of Patents of Oman?
A patent is protected for 20 years from the filing date. Annuities should be settled prior to the anniversary of the filing date of a national application or a PCT international application until the termination of the patent protection duration.
Q3. What are the Filing requirements in Oman?
  • Power of attorney legalised by the Omani Consulate.
  • Specification, claims, formal drawings, and abstract with Arabic translation.
Q4. How to examine a Oman patent application?
Accordingly, each applicant or its agent should submit a request for substantive examination with respect to applications formally accepted in the year 2013-2014 within two months from the date of the notification, i.e. 21 September 2016. Said request should be accompanied by a payment of the examination fees of OMR300 (equivalent to USD780) and a photocopy of the completed formalities, which includes the application form as submitted including any amendments to the specifications, description, abstract, claims, and drawings in Arabic and English languages, as well as a photocopy of the first page of the application for publication purposes.
Failure to submit said request on or before 21 November 2016, the patent application will be considered cancelled in accordance with article 9 (5) a and b of the Industrial Property Law no. 67/2008.
This comes as a result of the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Omani and the Egyptian Patent Offices, where the Egyptian Patent Office acts as the examining office for all pending and new patent applications filed in Oman.
