Name mismatch between visa and the new passport


Recommended Posts

My father has a valid B2 visa stamped on his old passport.  He recently got a new passport as the old passport has expired.

The name on the new passport has changed to include his last name.  Here is the situation:

Name on old passport :   xxxx

Name on the Visa (on old passport):  xxxx ( visa has not expired yet)

Name on the new passport:  xxxx yyyy.  ( last name was added)

Given this, is is ok to travel to USA if he carried some kind of proof to show that both the names belong to him ?
