Back in 2011, I applied and got my B1/B2 visa, which is still valid until 2016, but then in 2013, I got an internship in NYC, and got the J-1 visa which was only valid for 6 months (length of my internship) plus the grace period, so I went for my internship, and came back right after it was over. Now I've been back in my country of residence for almost 2 years (it'll be exactly 2 years in Aug'15).
I guess I just wanted to know if anyone knows whether or not this could be a problem for me to enter the US again for a 3 week holiday next month (July'15) with my B1/B2 visa that I got in 2011?
I'm just afraid that when I got the J-1 visa, it automatically cancelled my B1/B2 visa even if people in the consulate didn't say anything about it. Maybe I'm just worrying for no reason, but some countries do that, they automatically cancel your previous visa when you get another one, even if the newer visa is for a different purpose (ie. tourist visa - business visa, etc).
So I just wanted to know that, because I've Googled it, and also looked at US Travel Docs website FAQ, but no one has mentioned this problem so far. Also I don't think we can contact or go to the US embassy to ask questions, as they are very strict about appointments and everything.
Please note, on my J-1, it states "two-year rule does not apply". Also my B1/B2 is still perfectly fine physically, undamaged, unaltered in any way. However I recently got a new passport, and my B1/B2 (still valid) and J-1 visa are all in my old one.
