    You cannot transfer an already issued into a new passport. If your current passport is about to expire and your visa is still valid, get a new passport and present both the old and new passports when it's time to travel.

    Hello mom,

    I have a questing regards to this matter. I have my old passport that expired in November of last year and a new passport that embassy provided me with and my visa is on the old passport and I was advised to have 2 passports at all times when I want to travel: just like you said earlier in this thread.

    Hen I was filling my ds260. On the question about my visa and vida number I included information from the previous passport which was expired.

    However, when they asked me to provide my passport and passport ID, I provided information from the new passport, because I assumed if my embassy gave me new passport through my country then I did the right thing providing my new passport information since it should be in the U.S system.

    Could you advise please?
