Hi everyone. I hope I'm posting in the section. If not I apologize.

 

This August, me and my mom is going to Vietnam for my wedding. I am a US citizen and my mom is not. She is a resident card holder. Her card expired last Oct. 2018. She filed her application to renew Sept. 2018. Got her biometric done in Nov. 2018 because USCIS sent her biometric scan notice to the wrong address back in Sept 2018. So now her application is in processing. She also waiting on her 2nd naturalization interview because she failed the first time. And this is her 2nd application. I dont know if she will pass this time. Now, if she fail her interview, and for fear that her green card might not renewed before August, what are her option to be able to travel to Vietnam? She also dont have any kind of passport.

 

Thank you.

What country is she a citizen of? Or is she stateless? https://www.state.gov/j/prm/policyissues/issues/c50242.htm

Vietnam but she lost all of it in the 80s when she left the country. We got to the US via refugee status, if that make sense.
