Reply To: differing visa situations

Back to Forum


Steve – is this not a similliar discussion to the old argument about USA visas. I still retain a USA Multiple entry B-1/B-2 visa valid indefinitely in an old passport, allowing me a 6 month visit I recall.

I have more chance of flying to Mars and back than being able to have the still valid visa recognised (and there is no wording on the visa stamp to say it is conditional on the validity of any particular passport).

My brother, who merely asked the question to a USA immigration officer, got a simple answer, the officer ripped the page out of the old passport and said as the travel document was no longer valid and therefore he was removing the visa!
