Does changing Passport affect VISA application?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am a student in the US under VISA F-1. My passport has not expired yet, but it is partly ripped off, so I want to obtain a new one when I go back to my country this summer. Since I go back to my country, I have to obtain new VISA to re-enter the US.

I am not sure changing my passport is a good idea since I have many VISA's attached on the passport that I currently have. I'm afraid when I give the officers the new passport, they do not see the VISA's that I was given before, and they might question.

Does anyone see any problem? any advice is appreciated!

Thanks,

You could carry the old passport with you, the one with the visa in it, and show both to the CBP at the time of entry

now, that would work only if your home country does not keep your passport, do they keep it when you renew it?

Good luck

I can keep my old passport alright. However, I'm not concerned about entering the US with my new passport, but about having my VISA interview in the US Embassy of my country with my new passport. If I get my VISA on my new passport, I will have no trouble entering the US.

Is it a problem or am I worrying too much?

Thanks,

Maybe I dont understand your concern, if you have your new passport with a visa in it, what's the problem?

GOod luck

Dont sweat it.. They understand that passports need to be renewed.. bring both to the interview and they will put the visa in the new one.

AS CW said if you have new passport and new visa stamped on it then whts the problem?

I lost you at that point, anyways you can have new passport and valid visa in old passport - you can check with each countries embassy for which you have valid visa and they might be willing to put the copz of your exitsing visa on your new passport.
