subjects who are not in possession of passports are paid for in accordance
with Section 34 of the Tariff with the exception of cases when such
certificates are given free of charge in accordance with Section 35 of
the Tariff.

Section 34 is also applied when the names of members of one family

Consular duties free of charge, when they are not at liberty to do so.

of charge. Such attestations are inscribed in special booklets with

Consuls must not be mentioned in the trimester accounts of Consular
fees levied, but must be sent to that State Institution on behalf of
