Vietnamese citizens at airport

The flights were arranged by relevant agencies of the two countries and operated by Vietnam Airlines.

Passengers on the flights included children, the elderly, people with illnesses, pregnant women, labourers with expired contracts, students already completing their courses, and those in other disadvantaged circumstances.

Strict security, safety and epidemiological measures were implemented during the flights to ensure passengers’ health and prevent the spreading of diseases.

After the flights landed in Can Tho airport in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, all people on the flights had their health checked and were sent to quarantine in line with regulations.

Vietnamese citizens in disadvantaged circumstances abroad will continue to be repatriated in line with their wish as well as the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine capacity in the country.
