P. IV., Си. III. PASSPORTS FOR RUSSIAN SUBJECTS.

85

for the benefit of the Alexandra Committee for wounded soldiers.
This duty has to be paid every six months.

(c) If after the single passport is issued, the bearer of that
passport returns to Russia, after the expiration of the half year, the duties
for the benefit of the Red Cross are not charged, and the passport
duties for the printing and for the benefit of the Alexandra Committee
for wounded soldiers are charged from the day when the single
passport is issued. In each case collective passports which were presented
to the Consul on receipt of separate or single passports, receive the
exemptions provided for by Arts. 100 and 102 of the Passport
Regulations mentioned in § 72 of this " Guide."

Single passports are favoured with the same exceptions.

When collective passports are issued in the Governments of the
Tzardom of Poland, 5 roubles extra must be paid for each year ;
therefore, single passports, which have been issued on the strength of
collective passports given in the Tzardom of Poland, are charged an
additional 5 roubles each.

In order to escape payment of the fees on single passports, some
persons who leave Russia on a collective passport apply to Russian
Consuls requesting them to cancel the name of the person who requires
a single passport and to issue such a passport to him, the applicant,
thereby leaving the collective passport in the hands of the other
person or persons to whom it was originally issued. As such a
proceeding is opposed to the methods of passport regulations, such a
request cannot be complied with. Collective passports must always
be retained by the Consul when single passports are issued in exchange.

4. Youths who have finished their time in Russian naval schools
and, generally speaking, all Russian sailors and officers of the
Mercantile Navy who have passed their examinations according to
Art. 853 of the Russian Trade Regulations, receive passports to go
abroad on Russian or foreign trading vessels and can exchange them
for new ones at any Russian State Consulate, independently of
whether the five years have elapsed or not.1

5. Russian subjects who have lost their foreign passports can obtain
new ones from the Consuls, who must, in such cases, first ascertain
whether a foreign passport really was issued to the person applying
for a new one, referring the matter for decision to the II. Department
of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In order to save time,
this is usually done by telegraphing to the authority who issued the
passport, stating, approximately, the date of its issue. The telegram
is sent, reply paid, at the petitioner’s expense. In case of an
affirmative answer, the new passport is given, and the II. Department of the
Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Police Department of the
Ministry of the Interior are informed by the Consul of the fact.

In doing so the Consul must enclose with his report to the Police
Department a declaration of the person receiving the passport, using
the following form, viz. :—

Written Declaration of.......about the loss of

a passport to be issued abroad.

Date.......

1 Passport Reg., Art. 208.
