Dictionary Meaning Of Visitation

The act of a naval commander who visits, or enters on
board, a vessel belonging to another nation, for the purpose of
ascertaining her character and object, but without claiming or
exercising a right of searching the vessel. It is, however, usually
coupled with the right of search (see under Search), visitation being
used for the purpose of search.
