I have a confirmed electronic air ticket to visit USA and Canada which is confirmed with my old passport. But I have obtained a new passport for USA visit. Will there be any problems when I will check in at the airport counter?

  • If you contact the airline, you may be able to update your passport number. – Nate Eldredge May 25 '15 at 17:41
  • If you can log on to the airline's booking system you can usually update a passport number there. – DJClayworth May 25 '15 at 19:47
  • If you can not update the passport number, I would advise to simply bring your old passport - if you still have it. It can generally be invalidated by your embassy / home country as it may contain a relevant visa (etc) for travel. – Chris May 26 '15 at 10:21
  • Let's just say bringing your old (and of course your new passport) won't hurt. – gnasher729 May 29 '15 at 15:12

No, the passport and Advance Passenger Information merely need to be correct at the time you check in. You can update the information at check in, either online or at the desk.

Remember that, if you are a visa waiver national travelling under an ESTA, you will need a fresh ESTA with each new passport you use to enter the United States. If you have been approved before it usually processes within one minute.
