Default Passport - New/Old Visa

Hello,

Just require some clarity on:

I went on my last visa run last month and realized I don't have enough space on my passport anymore for stamps, so I sent off my passport to the UK requesting a new one. I've now received both old and new passports.

Will there be any consequences If I was to do the visa run this month, taken into consideration my old passport has my current visa however the old passport is not valid anymore, And the new passport which is valid is the new active passport but has no stamp.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

There should not be any problem as your visa is valid. You should get new visa on your new passport without any problem.

Just make sure you have both passports with you, as I was asked to produce the old one for verification.

Yeah of course I will take the old passport, as they provided a sticker last time I did the visa run not a stamp, so easier to show what date my last visa was.
