Teleport is a type of a Movement ability that instantly moves the unit to a target location. Due to this Teleports can naturally travel over terrain, if the range is sufficient, and cannot be affected by any abilities or AoEs between cast and target point, unlike Dash- and Launch-type abilities. Like other Movement abilities, getting Rooted still prevents the unit from using a Teleport ability for its duration.
Teleports do not normally grant "invulnerability frames", as the movement is usually instant. However, some Abilities, where the reappearing of the unit is delayed, are often affiliated with mechanics, such as Stasis, that allow avoiding damage or removing negative status effects.
Regardless of aforementioned mechanics, all teleport abilities can disjoint most projectiles, allowing the unit to dodge Basic Attacks and some unit targeted projectile-based Abilities, such as Arthas' "Death Coil".
