Filing Requirements – National Phase of PCT Applications in Vietnam


  • A Power of Attorney from the applicant (required within 34 months from the priority date), this deadline can not be extended unless approved by the NOIP;
  • A copy of the international patent application as filed if the Applicant requests entry into the Vietnam national phase before the international publication date (required at the date of entry);
  • A copy of the specification, claims, any text matter of drawings and abstract in English (if any of those parts have been amended, then both as originally filed and as amended under PCT Articles 19 or 34) for the purpose of translation into Vietnamese. (These documents should be available to us at least one month before the date of entry into Vietnamese national phase so that we can have enough time to prepare their translation thereof).

Note: For all applications including applications for utility solution, patent, trademark and industrial design, notarization of Power of Attorney and Deed of Assignment is no longer required, just need to be signed the applicant if the applicant is a natural person; or by the authorized person of applicant if the applicant is a legal entity and affixed by the corporate seal of such an entity (if any).


Name and address of the inventor(s) if they have not yet been furnished in the “request” part of the international application.
