abroad, he must apply to a State Consul requesting him to notify
the proper Russian authority of his request for a Russian passport

The signature to the power of attorney must be legalised by the Consul,

passports or papers of identity.6

who are provided with papers to prove that they have actually so
emigrated, and who are denied admission into Germany, must be
readmitted into the Empire if they have not been in Germany more
than one year counting from the date of their crossing the
Russo-German frontier.7
