What is a streamed extension of time?
This is a period that you can extend the time to respond to an office deadline if you are affected by COVID-19. You can apply for a free streamed extension for a period of up to 3 months or further if required.
When can you request a streamlined extension?
IP Australia Office has advised that the deadline of a streamlined extension has been further extended until 31 March 2021.
· You still can request for extension after the streamlined extensions after 31 March but then it will be considered case-by-case basic with the Registrar.
· Some periods you cannot use streamlined extensions such as the payment of renewal fees.
