Can you submit a URL that redirects?

If I submit a microsite URL (to Yahoo Directory) that redirects to a deeper page within the main site where it resides (this microsite URL is used in all other marketing pieces), will Yahoo Directory accept it or decline?
I cannot submit the main site's URL because the microsite section is so deep within the site that the URL would be too long to submit.

microsite URL example: www******newproduct.com (this is what I would submit to Yahoo Directory)

main site URL example:
www*********parentcompany.com/companyproducts/northamericaproducts/newproduct (www******newproduct.com redirects to this page deep within the main site)

Does this make sense to anyone? What would you suggest?
