British citizens don't require a visa for the US or Canada for short visits. You don't need to inform the consulates.
The visa will still be valid as far as that goes but the passport it is in (i.e. your Indian passport) will no longer be a valid passport, for the issuing authority (i.e. the Indian government) will no longer consider you to be a citizen. The fact that you might not have surrendered the passport or that it might not have been physically "cancelled" (e.g. by having the corner cut off) doesn't alter this.swordfish007 wrote: hi Jambo,
I understand your explanation for traveling to US & Canada on British Passport. However, Can you please clarify the following for me.
Is the visa on the Surrendered Indian Passport still valid interms of Port of Entry at USA? Or this visa is not valid? (As I hear, the general b1/b2 visa allows a visitor to stay upto 6m and British Visa Waver Program will allow a visitor for 3m) Can you please clarify?
