2 Article 8 of the Vienna Convention 1961 provides that members of the diplomatic staff of the mission should in principle be of the nationality of the sending state. It is further provided that members of the diplomatic staff may not be appointed from the nationals of the receiving state except with the consent of that state which may be withdrawn at any time. The position is the same with regard to nationals of third states. Size ot diplomatic mission It had hitherto been recognised that once agreement was reached on the question of opening of a diplomatic mission, it was up to the sending state to determine upon the size of its mission, namely the number of officials and staff that should be posted in its mission having regard to the volume of work and the interest it had to protect in the receiving state.

Protectorates. A protectorate on the other hand is an independent state which by means of a treaty surrenders itself to the protection of a stronger state. The status of a protectorate depends very much on the terms of the treaty of protection which regulates the relationship between the protectorate and the protecting power. Broadly speaking, many of these states retain their internal sovereignty whilst surrendering the conduct of their external relations and defence to the protecting state. Examples of this type of protectorate were the former Malayan states like Johore and Kelantan, which now form part of the Federation of Malaya, the British Persian Gulf protectorates, the British Protectorate of Tonga, and the Indian Protectorate of Sikkim.
