with Belgium of the 28th May/9th June 1858, and in the treaty of
commerce with Switzerland of the I4th/26th December 1872.[1]

Although Elective Consular Officers are ordinarily appointed
on the initiative of the State Consul for the District,[2] there are cases
when this is done by the Embassy or Legation : as, for instance, in
countries like Belgium, where there are no State Consuls. In countries
beyond the seas, where there are no Russian Legations or State Consuls,
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs appoints Elective Consular Officers
on its own initiative.

CHAPTER V. — Leave of Absence.

§ 13. Leave of Absence of State and Elective Consular Officers.

Consular Officers are under the obligation to be always present at
their official place of residence, or within their Consular district.
Generally speaking, therefore, Consuls may only leave their place
of residence and district, if they have requested and obtained
permission to do so. Elective Consuls should obtain such permission
from the State Consuls to whom they are subordinate. At the same
time, they are permitted—in view of their private business—to leave
their place of residence without first obtaining special permission to
do so, if their absence is only to be of short duration ; or if the
necessity for their absenting themselves is so urgent that it is impossible
for them to apply for leave in time. In such cases they must leave
a suitable substitute, for whose actions they will be responsible. There
is no fixed limit to the period during which Elective Consuls may
thus be absent from their posts without leave, it being assumed that
Elective Consular Officers will not protract their absence unnecessarily
or to the detriment of the service. If a more protracted absence is
contemplated, the Elective Consular Officer must request permission
from his superior State Officer, accompanying the request with a
recommendation of a suitable Deputy. In all cases, therefore, of the
absence of an Elective Consular Officer, the steps taken to supply a
suitable Deputy must be notified to the proper State Officer. The
absent official is also required to arrange that all communications and
instructions from his superior officers shall reach him—even during
his absence from his official residence.

State Consular Officers are under the obligation to apply to the
Embassy or Legation to which they are subordinate, for leave of
absence. Apart from such application, they are bound to inform
the First Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
each time they leave their place of residence, and of their return to it.
