The passengers included children aged under 18, pregnant women, the elderly, and those with illnesses.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Myanmar sent its staff to help the passengers complete all required procedures before boarding the flight.

Strict security, safety and hygiene measures were carried out during the flight to protect the passengers’ health and prevent COVID-19 transmission.

Right after landing at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, all passengers and crew members were given health checks and quarantined as regulated.

Under the Prime Minister’s direction, more flights will be arranged to bring overseas Vietnamese home, depending on the citizens’ need and the country’s quarantine capacity./.
