Generally, there is no time frame for filing short-term patent application. But if the applicant wishes to claim priority from a first application in a Paris Convention country or World Trade Organization member territory, they should file the short-term patent application in Hong Kong within 12 months of filing the first application. If the invention has been disclosed and applicant claims that the disclosure does not prejudice the invention's novelty, they should file the short-term patent application within 6 months of the disclosure. The maximum protection period of short-term patent is 8 years and 4 years to renew the patent from the start day of patent application in Hong Kong.
