If your passport contains a previously issued visitor visa, you can inquire about special
expedited procedures (available at most consular offices) for issuance of a new visitor visa.
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 can use it along with your new valid passport.
You should NOT typically need to hire professional help in order to prepare documents
or securing access to the U.S. consular office.
