VGP – A total number of 1,750 Vietnamese citizens from Singapore, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Thailand, the United Kingdom, Europe and Africa flew home safely from September 28-October 4.

As many as 1,750 Vietnamese nationals from three continents are repatriated from September 28-October 4.

The passengers included children under 18 years old, the elderly, the sick, stranded tourists, students who completed their courses and could not have their visas extended, businessmen, intellectuals and other disadvantaged cases.

Precautious measures were taken during these flights to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

So far, Viet Nam has organized 147 rescue flights to repatriate 42,565 citizens stranded abroad due to COVID-19.

More flights are set to be arranged in the time ahead to repatriate Vietnamese citizens with disadvantaged circumstances, depending on their need and domestic quarantine capacity./.
