– Nearly 350 Vietnamese citizens in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and India were carried to the homeland in a flight conducted by national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines on December 7-8.

On the repatriation flight, which was arranged by relevant agencies of Vietnam and the two countries, and the airlines, were children aged below 18, the elderly, pregnant women, workers with expired visa and labour contracts, and other especially disadvantaged cases.

Safety and preventive measures against COVID-19 were rigorously enforced during the flight to protect the passengers’ health and prevent the spread of the disease.

All passengers and crew members received medical checkups and were sent to quarantine in line with regulations upon their arrival at Cam Ranh international airport.

The repatriation of Vietnamese citizens in disadvantaged circumstances abroad will be continued in line with citizens’ wishes, the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, and quarantine capacity in the homeland./.
