Argentina is not part of the PCT and needs filling via national route. Does anyone know what are the basic steps and cost for filling there with a priority document written in English?

I imagine that a translation and a local attorney are necessary.

If available share a link for online filing

  • I also have this question. Did you ever figure it out @chempatent1981? – zachaysan Nov 10 '16 at 17:26

    We ended up naturally with a local patent attorney, who took care of the translation. The unusual part was that it required a lot of signatures, verifications and authorizations. I think our formalities officer even had to go to the Argentinian embassy for some papers. Cost without translation was around 1500 US$. – chempatent1981 Nov 11 '16 at 6:50

If you have filed an application in other country,you should file application in Argentina in 12 months.

You firstly need to translate the application into Spanish. Then, entrust a IP law firm in Argentina to handle the case.

I am a patent attorney in China, I handled cases for our client into Argentina. If you need I can recommend an attorney to you.
