OMAN Patent Official Fees Due

Joseph G. (Oct 15, 2016)

The Patent Office in Oman announced that substantive examination fees related to patent applications that have passed formality examination between 2013 and 2014 must be paid by November 21, 2016. No extension of time is possible.

As a reminder, the Omani and the Egyptian Patent Offices signed a memorandum of understanding on September 10, 2014 in which the two offices will work together towards the development of capabilities at the Omani Patent Office.

The Egyptian Patent Office will also act as the examining office for all pending and new patent applications filed in Oman. The Egyptian Patent Office is the only Arab office that serves as an International Search Authority, as well as an International Preliminary Examination Authority.
