Document How long is the EHIC valid for?

The EHIC will generally be valid for 5 years. However, applicants who are required to supply evidence of their entitlement or additional information in support of their application will have the expiry date of their EHIC set to the expiry date of their evidence, such as S1, visa or end of course of study.

If you intend to move abroad permanently then the expiry date of your EHIC will be set to the date that you are expecting to leave the UK.
