The important question would seem to be on what basis is the person applying for one, EPEC, dependent.. ?

The answer to this question has been debated before recently, and yet the answer is not entirely clear (it would appear that rules and forms have changed and maybe application instructions have not).

It seems to boil down to whether you need to input your D/E card* number online as a part of the LTVP application process.

We have had people say that in practice you do not, contrary to what the instructions say. That would mean that you can apply from abroad prior to arrival.

If you go through the process and find clarity, please take a moment to revert here and let us know what you found. It would benefit other people in future!


* = landing card. The white card you are left with in your passport when you go through immigration.
