How long does it take for a patent application to be approved

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) estimates an average of about 24 months to get patent approval (or final rejection) after filing the patent application (data as of Feb. 2020). If you're eligible for a prioritized examination for plant and utility patents, known as Track One, you might get approval in six to 12 months.
