What does 'telex' refer to in regards to ordering a dual entry 3 month business invitation?
I need the invitation (original copy) posted to me in Australia.
Thank you

Actually telex is better because it counts as an original, but it goes directly to the Russian consulate through an old-school last century system called, well, "telex". So it's much better to get that one because it counts as an original and you don't have to have it posted to you via mail (which implies additional costs).

Our partner companies offer "telex" business invitations, which you can get online on http://waytorussia.net/Services/VisaSupport/Business.html
