On June 15th Telnic (.tel registry) starts with the registration of .tel IDN names. IDN names are names which contain special characters. From then on, it will be possible to register .tel names which contain Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, Polish, Icelandic, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese characters.

Attention: Applications for .tel IDN domain names will be treated on a first come, first served basis. There will be no sunrise or landrush. Owners of a registered trademark won’t have the chance to be the first register their name under this extension. So don’t wait any longer to pre-register your name.

Furthermore, the same restrictions apply for this extension as for a regular .tel name. You can’t link a website to those domain names, only a page which contains all your contact information.
