All submissions are subject to a review during the validation process by the .tel registry validation agent.

You must check the Sunrise WHOIS Web site daily to learn the status of your application. There may be a delay in publishing the status of your application after initial submission. If you do not agree with the decision of the validation agent, you may challenge this decision within 10 calendar days of the decision date. Click here for more on the sunrise application process.
