HÀ NỘI — As many as 69 Vietnamese citizens have returned home on a repatriation flight from African countries on June 15 and 16.
The flight was arranged by Vietnamese embassies in South Africa and Mozambique, the authorised agencies of South Africa, Mozambique, and Eswatini and SSA South Africa Airways. It landed at Hà Nội-based Nội Bài International Airport on Tuesday afternoon.
Passengers on the flights were children under 18 years of age, pregnant women, the elderly with underlying medical conditions, stranded tourists, labourers whose visas or employment contracts have expired, and students who have completed their course and have no residence.
The Vietnamese Embassy in South Africa and Mozambique have worked closely with local governments to support people to move among countries and help them with residence and necessities.
After landing at the airport, all passengers have been under medical examination and sent to concentrated quarantine sites as regulated. — VNS
