Hanoi (VNA) - Over 250 Vietnamese citizens were flown home from the Republic of Korea on a flight of Vietjet Air on September 30 as a joint effort of competent authorities of both nations.

 The passengers included children under 18, the elderly, people with illnesses, pregnant women, workers whose contracts have expired, and students without accommodation due to dormitory closure.

 The Vietnamese Embassy in the RoK sent staff to help the citizens with pre-departure procedures at the airport.

 Security, safety and epidemiological hygiene measures were rigorously taken during the flight to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 Upon their arrival at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, all the crew members and passengers were given medical checkups and put under quarantine in line with regulations.

 In the time to come, more repatriation flights will be arranged to bring Vietnamese citizens home, depending on their demand and domestic quarantine capacity./.
