Visit entry clearances will be valid for unlimited journeys within the validity period. The duration of each visit will be limited to a maximum period of six months. The expiry date reflects the date on which both the entry clearance and any leave to enter conferred by the entry clearance are no longer effective. Therefore, you will be required to leave the UK by the expiry date. Even if you hold a valid entry clearance you may still be examined by an Immigration Officer on arrival in the United Kingdom. You can still be refused entry to the UK by an Immigration Officer if they are satisfied that: (a) your entry clearance was obtained by false representations or by failure to disclose material, whether or not you knew of these actions; or (b) there is a change in circumstances between the date of your application and your arrival in the UK; or refusal is justified on medical grounds, because you are subject to a deportation order, or because your exclusion would be conducive to the public good. An Immigration Officer may also vary or suspend your leave to enter on arrival in the UK. An Immigration Officer can ask anyone to be medically examined on arrival in the UK, if they consider it necessary. You may be required to have a medical examination before your entry clearance is issued. Non-EEA Dependant of an EEA national This category is for non-EEA (European Economic Area) national family members of EEA nationals who are applying for a family permit to go to the UK to install themselves with the EEA national.
