VISA OF PASSPORTS.

Si

State without having ceased to be Russian subjects. The Britisli
authorities grant passports to naturalised British subjects with the
qualification :—

" That the bearer shall not when within the limits of the foreign
" State of which he was a subject previous to obtaining his certificate
" of naturalisation be deemed to be a British subject, unless he has

ceased to be a subject to that State in pursuance of the laws thereof,
" or in pursuance of a treaty to that effect."1

8. To persons in whose passport mention is made of their travelling
abroad for the practice of the profession of a veterinary surgeon or of
a doctor of medicine.2

The visa of the passports of foreign Armenians is given by State
consent on the condition that there are no doubts of their political
trustworthiness.

All foreigners desirous of visiting Russian Central Asia for
commercial purposes or as private travellers, must first obtain permission
to do so by applying to their Ambassador in Russia who will
communicate with the Russian Foreign Office.3

The visa can be obtained from any Russian Legation or State
Consulate, on any valid passport issued by the competent authority
of any nationality whatever.

Persons who have in a lawful manner ceased to be Russian subjects
and have left the Empire, can only obtain the visa of their passports
after the expiration of five years from the day they leave Russia.4

It is essential that passengers on board ships proceeding to Russia
should be provided with national passports duly vise by a Russian
Consul. Members of the crew are admitted into the country on the
strength of the ship’s crew-list. It sometimes happens, however, that
ordinary travellers who are not seamen are entered on the crew-list,
and thus attempt to enter the country on the pretence of being seamen.
Consular Officers must endeavour, as far as possible, to prevent this
form of abuse of the passport regulations. On the other hand,
supercargoes are permitted to enter Russia without passports, provided
that their names are inserted in the crew-lists by a Russian State or
Elective Consular Officer.5

Men employed on boats, ships, and rafts, and coming to Russia
by way of the Vistula and Dniester rivers from Galicia, and of the
Nieman and Vistula rivers from Prussia, are admitted on the strength
of their papers of identity, which do not require the Consular visa,
on the terms of the Russo-Austrian Treaty, Vienna, 21st April/3rd
May 1815, Arts. 24 and 28, and of the Russo-Prussian Treaty of the
same date (Art. 28). Raftsmen coming to Russia from Bukovina,
however, by way of the river Pmth, are required to present their
national passports for visa to the Russian State-Consul at Czernowitz.
