Dear Friends,

I am traveling to canada for a conference. My H1-B is stamped on my old passport valid till 2012. In January 2010 I obtained a new passport from the indian embassy chicago as my old passport was getting expired. I will be traveling with both the passports.

Is it mandatory to transfer the visa from old to new pasport ?

Please help,

When your passport expires, the visas on that passport are not cancelled. They remain valid.
I travelled to india and came back with the visa stamped on my old passport.
You are fine Sir.
