Dear all,

I have a valid I-797 till May 2015 but my H1B visa got expired last year in January 2013.

I just came to India on vacation last week and did below 2 things:

1. Got my passport renewed in India since it was expiring in August 2014.

2. Applied for H1B re-stamping since I need to have a valid visa "before" entering US.

So my question is would there be an issue with my old passport since my visa application included the "old" passport number?

Or I should just carry both the old and new passports during my visa interview here in India?

I would highly appreciate an early response on my queries above.

Regards,

Nilesh

Carry both your passports. You could also update DS160 with new passport number by contacting customer service of stanley.
