NDO – Vietnamese citizens are warned not to visit Syria or neighbouring areas (that may be affected) at this time until the local situation has been stabilised, in order to avoid any of the risks arising from the current conflict.

The Consular Department under the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a warning to its citizens on April 14 in the face of growing tensions in the Middle Eastern country over recent days.

In case of emergency, Vietnamese citizens abroad may contact the Vietnamese Embassy in Iran (which serves citizens in Syria) at the helpline number +98212411670, or their relatives in Vietnam can contact the citizenship protection operators at +84981848484 for timely assistance.
