On the morning of January 12, about 60 Vietnamese people with difficult circumstances living and working in the Northeastern region of Thailand returned to Vietnam by road for the upcoming lunar New Year (Tet) Festival in the context that commercial flights remain limited and expensive.

Vietnamese people living and working in the Northeastern region of Thailand return to Vietnam by road.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there have been many flights to bring Vietnamese citizens home from abroad. However, passenger transport by road through a third country is unprecedented.

Vietnamese Consul General in Khon Kaen Chu Duc Dung said the arrangement for the transport of Vietnamese nationals in Thailand to Vietnam by road via Laos is a big challenge as it involves immigration procedures of three countries. However, it helps reduce costs for Vietnamese people in Thailand who want to return home on the occasion of the Tet festival.

He took the occasion to thank the authorities of Thailand and Laos for creating favorable conditions for Vietnamese citizens to return home safely.
