Two Vietnamese citizens who got lost in Australia’s Sydney airport and missed their flight to Vanuatu were supported by the Vietnamese Consulate General to arrive in their target destination safely.

Nguyen Nhu Tuyet, 33, and Chu Quang Thang, 32, were on their way to Vanuatu on September 27 to work as guest workers for a construction company there.

They received help with migration procedures to enter Sydney from several Vietnamese nationals as well as temporary accommodation before catching a flight to Vanuatu on September 30.

According to Vietnamese Consul General to Sydney Hoang Minh Son, the Foreign Ministry has set up a citizen protection hotline at +84.4.62.844.844 that helps connect Vietnamese citizens with representative offices all over the world.

He also advised companies sending workers abroad to give them clear guidelines on how to connect with Vietnamese representative offices abroad and cope with possible situations.-VNA
