    Good morning,

    I am an Israeli citizen with a US tourist visa that is valid until 2022. Recently however my passport was damaged, and the main laminated page with my photo, name, etc came out. I still have it in the passport, but it is completely detached. I am in the process of obtaining a new passport. However, since my US visa is in the old passport, I am curious to know if I will need to obtain a new visa in the new passport or if it will be enough for me to bring along both passports when I travel to the U.S.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Usually the visa is valid even if the passport it is in is not valid. However, I advise you to contact the embassy and ask. If you do it by email, attach some photos. Email is advantageous because you then have a written record.
