Preface 
 
This publication contains the names of the members of the diplomatic 
staffs of all missions and their spouses.  Members of the diplomatic 
staff are the members of the staff of the mission having diplomatic 
rank.  These persons, with the exception of those identified by 
asterisks, enjoy full immunity under provisions of the Vienna Convention 
on Diplomatic Relations.  Pertinent provisions of the Convention include 
the following: 
 
Article 29 
 
The person of a diplomatic agent shall be inviolable.  He/she shall not 
be liable to any form of arrest or detention.  The receiving State shall 
treat him/her with due respect and shall take all appropriate steps to 
prevent any attack on his/her person, freedom, or dignity. 
 
Article 31 
 
A diplomatic agent shall enjoy immunity from the criminal jurisdiction 
of the receiving State.  He/she shall also enjoy immunity from civil and 
administrative jurisdiction, except in the case of: 
 
((a)  a real action relating to private immovable property situated in 
the territory of the receiving State, unless he/she holds it on behalf 
of the sending State for the purposes of the mission; 
 
(b)  an action relating to succession in which the diplomatic agent is 
involved as executor, administrator, heir, or legatee as a private 
person and not on behalf of the sending State; 
 
(c)  an action relating to any professional or commercial activity 
exercised by the diplomatic agent in the receiving State outside of 
his/her official functions. 
 
A diplomatic agent's family members are entitled to the same immunities 
unless they are United States nationals.  ASTERISKS (**) IDENTIFY UNITED 
STATES NATIONALS.
