Passport renewal

Hello everyone!

I need to renew my US passport and I have my old Indefinite Remain To Leave visa in it, which is fine; however, I also have a Biometric Remain To Leave visa (I got it this March) and I was wondering, can I just use that upon returning to the UK and not worry if the old visa is put in the new passport? I think so, but I need clarification!

Thanks.

Yes, the biometric visas are replacing the old-style passport vignettes so that replaces any need to transfer the visa to a new passport. (Before, you could actually have continued to use the visa in your old passport in conjunction with the new passport, and in fact you still can use that to enter the UK, but it's no longer acceptable as proof of right to work.)
