The 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, Article I, foresees that "premises of the mission" are the buildings or parts of buildings and the land ancillary thereto, irrespective of ownership, used for the purposes of the mission including the residence of the Head of the Mission.

Offices which are not within mission’s premises and which do not fulfill a genuinely diplomatic function are not regarded as constituting parts of foreign embassies.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is not in a position to accept persons as members of missions who have functions other than those that fall within the officially accepted sphere of diplomacy.
