Does Last Name change in Passport affect US Visa B1/B2

Hi, Need you expert advise on below query. I changed my Surname in my Passport from Singh to Prashar and I have B1/B2 US valid Visa with singh surname expired in 2026. Can I travel to the US with this visa name Singh surname along with old and new passport and carrying supporting documents for the name change.

Yes of course you can. But I do suggest you consult the US consulate once too because US has state specific laws so while some US states may allow, others may not. So consult the US consulate also....
