The privileges and immunities of diplomatic agents and their families and of the administrative, technical and service staff and private servants1 may be waived by the sending state2. A waiver by the head of the mission or any person for the time being performing his functions is deemed to be a waiver by that state3. Waiver must always be express4. Accordingly, even if a person entitled to immunity has entered an appearance or pleaded otherwise than to the jurisdiction, he may at a later stage prove that his government has not consented to a waiver of his immunity
