Over 340 Vietnamese in Russia return home

Passengers on the flight included children under 18, the elderly, people with chronic diseases, workers with expired visas, students without residence due to the closure of the dormitories and other disadvantaged cases.

The embassy sent officials to support the citizens at the airport.

All of the passengers underwent health checks and quarantine right upon their entry at Van Don airport in the northeastern province of Quang Ninh.

This is the 89th rescue flight arranged since April 10, bringing home 22,305 nationals stranded abroad due to Covid-19.

Vietnamese authorities and overseas missions plan to arrange more flights to bring more Vietnamese citizens home, depending on their wish and quarantine capacity at home.
