Default Visa Validity

Hello all
I have recieved my passports with immigrant visa stamped last month (Skilled Worker).
The visa validity was from 15 Oct 2004 to 15 March 2005 (6 months validity) But I have done my medicals on June 1st, 2004. Shouldn't the visa validity be one year from the medicals!! Shouldn't the visa expire on June 1st, 2005 instaed of Mrach 2005
Any thoughts / comments
Thank you

It may be valid for **up to** 12 months from medicals. There are many reasons for visa being valid for less than 12 months from medicals - most common is validity date of the passport (visa cannot be valid beyond validity of passport).

Hi Andrew,

Medical and passport validity aside, what are the other possible reasons that would somehow shorten the validity of the visa? Thanks

I can't think of any other reason than validity of medical decision or validity of passport.
