Can people who are not USA citizens file patents in USA?

Yes, you can absolutely file a patent in the US without being a citizen.

However, a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • You should make sure that your idea has not already been patented (this happens more than you may think)
  • Decide which type of patent is best for you (utility, design, provisional)
  • The patent filed in the US offers protection within the US

To know if this is the best avenue for you, you should talk to an IP attorney.
