VGP – Eight flights carrying 1,930 Vietnamese citizens from Chinese Taipei, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and the US landed in Viet Nam from October 5-11, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As many as 1,930 Vietnamese citizens are repatriated from three continents from October 5-11.

The passengers on these flights included children under 18, pregnant women, the elderly, workers whose labor contracts had expired, students with no residences due to dormitory shutdown and other with especially difficult circumstances.

Precautious measures were implemented during the flights to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

Right after arriving at local airports, all the passengers received check-ups and were sent to concentrated quarantine sites in line with current regulations on COVID-19 responses.

From April 10 to October 11, local agencies coordinated with Viet Nam’s representative agencies overseas to launch 155 flights, bringing home about 44,492 Vietnamese citizens stranded abroad due to COVID-19.

In the time to come, more repatriation flights will be arranged to bring Vietnamese citizens home, depending on their demand and domestic quarantine capacity./.
