Travelers to the U.S. on the Visa Waiver Program are obliged to have 1. approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) and 2. a valid biometric passport (for Slovak passports, only those issued after January 15, 2008 are biometric) prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the United States.

Do you have a valid visa in an expired passport? If you are going for the same purpose, and you haven’t changed your name or other basic information, then you can travel to the U.S. with two passports: the old one with the valid visa, and the new one, together.
