I'm a citizen of another country and currently reside there. Is it possible to file an online patent using USPTO from my country? Or s I can file should I file an international Patent through USPTO?
For the first part, after filing patent application in the patent office of own country one has to take permission to file patent in foreign country. If permitted, one has to get registered with private pair of USPTO (uspto.gov/pair) and then one can file application with USPTO on line from anywhere. For second part, international application can be filed with WIPO through patent office of own country. USPTO handles international application of only US Nationals. By the by, WIPO does not grant any patent. It facilitates search for prior art, opinion on patentability and two years of additional time to apply in country of one's interest.
