Such employment shall be permitted, subject to the applicable rules of international law.

II 
Definitions, and Interpretation 
For the purposes of this Arrangement:
1. “mission employee” means any employee of the sending State:

In Slovenia such course must be notified for the purposes of this Arrangement to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and in the United Kingdom, such course must be notified to and approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
iii) unmarried children who are physically or mentally disabled and remain dependants at any age but are able to work.
Ill 
Authorisation to engage in a gainful occupation 
1. The family member will be authorized to engage in a gainful occupation in the receiving State in accordance with the provisions of the applicable legislation of the receiving State and the provisions of this Arrangement.
2. The receiving State will retain the right to withhold or withdraw authorisation in the following circumstances:

IV

3. In the United Kingdom, a member of the family is authorized to work with no further administrative procedures required.
4. Authorisation for a family member to engage in a gainful occupation will not imply exemption from any requirements, procedures or fees which may ordinarily apply to any employment, whether relating to personal characteristics, professional or trade qualifications or otherwise. In the case of professions requiring special qualifications, the family member will not be exempted from fulfilling the applicable requirements.
Civil and Administrative Jurisdiction 
Where a family member has, in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961 or any other applicable international instrument, immunity from the civil and administrative jurisdiction of the receiving State, such immunity will not apply in respect of any act carried out in relation to the gainful employment of that family member and which also fall within the civil or administrative jurisdiction of the receiving State.

a) In the event that such a family member is accused of a criminal offence committed in relation to their gainful occupation, the sending State will give serious consideration to any written request that may be submitted by the receiving State for waiving such immunity.
b) A waiver of immunity from criminal jurisdiction under this paragraph will not be construed as being or extending to a waiver of immunity from execution of any sentence made pursuant to the exercise of that jurisdiction, for which a separate waiver will be required.
VII
