The "standard" deadline for filing South African national phase patent applications is 31 months from the earliest priority date. However, our system permits South African national phase patent applications to be filed during the 3 month extension period (i.e. up to 34 months from the earliest priority date) without additional cost.
We will immediately file your South African patent application, and email you the filing receipt (with the South African patent application number) within a couple of days of filing.
Our South African patent agents S&Z Patent Attorneys will prosecute your South African national phase patent application to grant. All communications will be sent by email. Login to your Dashboard to monitor the status of your application, and to instruct: publication of Acceptance (US$70); and courier of the South African patent registration certificate (Optional, US$110).
With the exception of pharmaceutical patent applications, your South African national phase patent application should be granted within 12 months, at a total cost of US$269.
