– Relevant agencies of Vietnam and Australia joined hands to bring nearly 270 Vietnamese citizens home on October 15.

Passengers on the flight, operated by Bamboo Airways, included children under 18, elderly people, workers whose contracts expired, and others with difficult circumstances.

The Vietnamese representative agencies in Australia sent staff to the airport to help the citizens with check-in procedures.

Strict security, safety and epidemiological measures were implemented during the flight to ensure passengers’ health and prevent the spread of diseases.

After landing in the Can Tho International Airport, passengers and crew members had their health checked and sent to quarantine in line with regulations.

The repatriation of Vietnamese citizens in disadvantaged circumstances abroad will continue to be conducted in line with citizens’ wishes, the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine capacity in the country./.
