  • More information will be required, including your husband's citizenship and to where you want to travel, and the nature of the visa. Jul 23, 2018 at 20:06

    It's not clear to me why you're concerned about an expired passport with an expired visa in it. Neither of these things are useful. You need an unexpired passport and an unexpired visa.

  • You don't say which country, but if you wanted to argue that they gave you a visa before, so they should give you a visa again, then most countries will be keeping track and know that you had a visa.

  • Are you asking how to find the passport number for inclusion in a new/current visa application?

    @brhans I agree. I would vote to reopen the question if it were edited to explain why the expired visa or expired passport is thought to be needed. As it is, I would leave the question closed.

1 Answer 1


Although you don't say which country you are from, or where you want to travel to, the procedures are pretty much the same whatever the answer.

  1. Apply for a new passport
  2. When you receive it apply for a new visa.
  3. When you receive the new visa use it to travel.

If by some chance you are in a country without a valid visa for it, then still apply for a new passport through your country's embassy, and then leave back to your home country and apply for a new visa there.
