Default B2 visa valid until 2020, passport expires 2015

Hi all,

My dad (Malaysian citizen) has a B2 visa which is valid until 2020 but his passport expires in June 2015 - does anyone know if he will still be able to use the current visa even though he will have a new passport post-2015 or if he will need to apply for a new visa to go in the new passport?

Thanks in advance

Jonathan

He doesn't need a new visa, because the current visa will remain valid. When he travels, he will need to carry both the old and the new passport. Simple.

Both PP's must be the same nationality.
