Abstract: A sufficient condition is obtained for the weak convergence of additive functionals defined on a sequence of Markov chains approaching a Markov process . The condition is expressed in terms of transient probabilities of the chains . An application of the main result is given for the convergence on the Cantor set of local-time type functionals of random walks approaching an -stable process with index .
