Over 220 Vietnamese citizens brought home from Japan

More than 220 Vietnamese citizens were brought home from Japan on October 6 on a flight arranged by Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnamese Embassy in Japan, Vietjet Air and Japanese competent agencies.

The passengers included children aged under 18; pregnant women; the elderly; the illnesses; guest workers whose contracts expired; students whose dormitories closed and other people in extremely difficult circumstances.

The Vietnamese Embassy sent staff to the airport to assist them with boarding procedures.

Vietjet strictly implemented in-flight security and disease prevention measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Upon landing at the Cam Ranh international airport in the south central province of Khanh Hoa, all crewmembers and passengers were given heath checkups and put into compulsory quarantine in accordance with regulations.

In the future, more flights are set to be conducted to repatriate Vietnamese citizens with disadvantaged circumstances, depending on their need and quarantine capacity at home./.
