star this property answer text <p>​The appointment of Heads of Mission, both Ambassadors and High Commissioners, to the Court of St. James's is governed in international law by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (VCDR) 1961. Article 4(1) of the VCDR requires that the sending State must ensure that agrément for the person it proposes to accredit as Head of Mission has been granted by the receiving State, before that person may be permitted by the receiving State to undertake the role. Under the VCDR a receiving State is not obliged to give reasons to the sending State for refusal of agrément.</p><p>The Foreign and Commonwealth Office reviews all requests for agrément from sending States. On the recommendation of the Secretary of State, Her Majesty The Queen gives formal approval of appointments and grants their credentials in a formal ceremony.</p> more like this
