Upon the filing of an application for appointment as executor or administrator of the estate of a deceased alien with surviving heirs residing in a foreign country, or as soon thereafter during the administration of the estate as the probate court ascertains that the deceased was an alien, the court shall cause notice of the proceedings to be forwarded by registered mail to the nearest consular representative of the country of which the deceased was a citizen. The executor or administrator shall inform the court that the deceased was an alien as soon as such fact is ascertained by such executor or administrator, but failure to inform the court of such fact or to notify such consular representative as provided in this section shall not delay nor invalidate the administration proceedings or any part thereof.
