Cleaning out some old stuff today I came across my Visa from when I used to travel for Mega Corp. It expired in 2002. Can I just throw it or would I need to turn it in if I apply for a visa in the future? I know one of our employees had two visas on him when crossing the border (didn't turn in his old one) and had to spend the day being held in Juarez.

Visa to where?

My visas to the USA, to Australia, to India were stamped or attached to pages in my passport and all either expired at a certain date or when the passport expired. Can't see any reason to hang onto an old visa, even though I do.

I would say something that old... shred it.

Then if, for some weird reason, you were asked for it, explain that, gee, that was a decade ago and i have no idea i even had it. Must have lost it. & then shrug.

Thanks for replies. Used to travel to Mexico to Maquildoras before NAFTA was approved. Don't miss those trips at all, but lots of stories/memories.
