NDO/VNA - Nearly 340 Vietnamese citizens have been brought home from the Republic of Korea (RoK) and quarantined upon arrival.

The Vietnamese Embassy and relevant agencies in the RoK and the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines have worked together to arrange the flight which landed at Da Nang International Airport in the central city on May 27.

The passengers include children, students, the elderly, sick people, labourers whose visas have expired and tourists, people on business trips who were stranded due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following orders of the Prime Minister, the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Transport have collaborated with Vietnamese agencies in a number of countries to bring home Vietnamese citizens over the past few weeks.

All returnees and crew members have been quarantined after landing. Those who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 have been moved to healthcare facilities.

The Vietnamese agencies located overseas will continue to work with domestic airlines to arrange more flights to bring Vietnamese citizens home, depending on the developments of the pandemic and quarantine capacity of localities.
