Every five years. I just go onto the OFCOM website, bring up my UK licence G3VUI and do what needs to be done. Job done.

With regards to your UK call, UK licensees have to regularly revalidate their license via the OFCOM website.
However in respect of those holding a UK call living overseas then, frankly I have no idea how it works. Dropping an e-mail to OFCOM with your query may get you your answer but I can't find anything in the "Amateur Portal" relating to overseas holders of UK calls.
The OFCOM portal is here
Ofcom Amateur and Ships Radio Licensing Portal - Ofcom <https://www.ofcom.org.uk/manage-your-licence/radiocommunication-licences/online-licensing-service>
and there is a list of revoked calls here
List of revoked amateur callsigns (ofcom.org.uk) <https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0024/44835/list_of_revoked_amateur_callsigns.pdf> but your UK call isn't listed.
Having said all of that I find the OFCOM website on one the most useless sites on the internet. I'm never able to find what i want as the information is all lumped together with commercial and shipping licensees. Its a really poor site.
