2) Will they invalidate the valid visas in old passport?
3) Simply, Can I use old passport?

  • I am not sure if it is possible to use the old passport. I believe it is possible to use the Visa that the old passport has, but not really use the old passport. – Marcel P. Apr 10 '17 at 19:27

    No, no, and Yes (you can use the visa in the old passport however you need to use it together with a new passport). Voted close question because H1B not covered here – user 56513 Apr 10 '17 at 20:06

  1. No, not while the visa remains valid

  2. No

  3. Yes, together with your new one. You must present both at immigration, the old one open at the visa page, and the new one open at the main ID page

A passenger may enter the USA with a valid visa in an expired passport, provided also holding a valid passport of the same nationality
