More Vietnamese citizens brought home from Australia, New Zealand

More than 340 Vietnamese citizens were flown home from Australia and New Zealand on December 9 on a Vietnam Airline flight.

The flight was arranged by the Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnamese representative offices in Australia and New Zealand, the national flag carrier, and authorities in the host nations.

Passengers on board include the elderly, children under 18 years old, labourers with expired contracts and people in extremely difficult circumstances.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, disease prevention measures were strictly carried out during the flight. Upon landing at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, the flight crew and all passengers were given health check-ups and quarantined.

In October, competent authorities joined hands to bring home 350 Vietnamese citizens in Australia and New Zealand.
