Visa Renewal Eligibility and Requirements:
Anyone who has previously held a valid, or has a visa which is about to expire, has the right to apply for a new United States visitor visa. There is no specific visa renewal process, you need to submit a new visa application. However, some U.S. Embassies and Consulates have special expedited procedures available for applicants who have previously held a U.S. visa or have a visa which is about to expire. This process is sometimes called “Reuse and Reissuance Visa Procedures”. One of main advantages of visa renewals is that the applicant may not be required to appear at a visa interview, especially if the individual has had a U.S. visa for several years, has traveled in and out of the United States multiple times, and has never overstayed his/her stay in the United States.
Can I travel with a valid visa in an expired passport?
Unless previously canceled, a visa is valid until its expiration date. Therefore, if you have a valid U.S. visitor visa in an expired passport, you may use it along with a new, valid passport for travel and admission to the United States.
