I wanted to find out if I can travel to the US on 01 Sep

Customer Question

Hi, I wanted to find out if I can travel to the US on 01 Sep 2016 if I have a visa valid for the US until Dec 2025, my passport expires on 10 October 2016.
Will I be allowed to travel into the US with 6 weeks remaining on my passport?
The reason I am asking this is that I have applied for a new passport from South Africa but the waiting time is around 4 - 8 months
I am in a bit of a sticky situation as the reason for traveling to the US is very important. It's my wedding on the 17th Sep that has been booked for 1 year now and I can not cancel the booking nor get a refund.
Please could you advise me on this situation?
Thank you
Shaine
