End of tenure



When a permanent representative relinquishes his/her post, the current practice is that he/she pays a farewell visit to the Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva and to the directors and/or secretaries-general of the specialized agencies and other international organizations to which he/she is accredited and that he/she informs UNOG in writing, of his/her departure and the name of the member of the permanent mission who will be in charge of the Mission in the capacity of Chargé d’affaires ad interim.

There is no institutionalized practice of farewell gifts from permanent representatives to a departing permanent representative.
