34S REDUCTION, &c., OF CUSTOMS DUTIES. P. ix., Сн. и.

periods to places not remote from the frontier, are only permitted to
bring with them such articles as were taken out of the country by
them ; all other articles are regarded as imported goods and are dealt
with accordingly.1

Residents in the frontier governments of the Empire and in the
frontier districts of the provinces subordinate to the Governor-General
of Warsaw, proceeding abroad on travelling passports, come under the
same head in the matter of passenger luggage as persons who have
estates partly in Russia and partly in an adjacent country.2

Postmen coming from abroad, temporarily, to a station are not
permitted to have any property with them, excepting the clothes they
are wearing and other indispensable articles. The customs officers are
required to make sure that they return with all the articles about them
with which they originally travelled.3

Principals and employees (whether Russian or foreigners) going
abroad either overland or along river routes, may bring with them
on their return, in addition to articles originally taken away with them,
only articles of clothing, viz. : one change of clothes, except for
overcoats, of which only one may be brought in, and half a dozen sets of
every kind of underclothing for wear.4 Carters, pilots and seamen on
their return from abroad are only permitted to bring with them articles
used by the peasant class, in three-fold quantities.

Other goods are dealt with according to the general rules, while
very small articles are admitted free if the amount of duty upon them
does not exceed one rouble and fifty copecks.5

On the 26th May 1903, His Majesty the Emperor approved a
Customs Regulation, according to which the following articles are
exempted from customs inspection and from the payment of customs
duty :—

I. The personal effects of (a) heads of States, foreign princes and
princesses visiting Russia ; (b) persons accredited to His Majesty
the Emperor or charged with special missions by foreign governments
to the Imperial Court ; (с) ambassadors, ministers plenipotentiary,
resident ministers, charges d’affaires, diplomatic agents and other
representatives of foreign States holding equal rank with those
enumerated above ; (d) military and naval attaches to foreign embassies
and legations ; (e) members of diplomatic corps forming part of
foreign embassies or legations ; and (/) members of the suite of heads
of States, princes and princesses mentioned in section (a).

II. The persons designated above in section (c) of paragraph I.,
enjoy, during the first year of their sojourn in Russia, unlimited
exemption from customs duties ; for every subsequent period of five
years the customs duties are remitted to a total of not exceeding
6,750 roubles to ambassadors ; 4,500 roubles to ministers
plenipotentiary, and 2,250 roubles to resident ministers, charges d’affaires, and
diplomatic agents. The same exemption is granted to persons holding
equal rank with the diplomatic representatives enumerated in this
paragraph.
