Visa on expired non-UK passport but travelling on British Passport

Post by mkh05r » Fri Dec 08, 2017 5:07 pm

My son is dual British citizen. His non-UK passport, which expired recently, has a Valid USA visitors Visa. He cannot apply for ESTA as his visa is valid. Can he travel to USA on his British Passport and the Visa on the expired non-UK passport? Will the Airline board him? I could not find any rules regarding this scenario. Could anyone help me please ?

If he wants to travel on his British passport without a valid US visa in his British passport, then I think it may simpler if he applies for an ESTA authorization.

Can he apply for ESTA authorization or not?

The way to find out is when he tries to apply.
