VTV.vn - More than 310 Vietnamese citizens were flown home from the US on July 26-27.

The flight, which departed from the San Francisco airport, was arranged by Vietnamese functional agencies, Vietnamese representative offices in the US, the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, and relevant agencies of the host country.

The passengers came from different states in the US and included the elderly, children aged under 18, pregnant women, those with underlying diseases, workers with expired labour contracts, stranded visitors, and students with no accommodation due to hostel closure.

Strict security and safety measures on disease prevention and control were closely observed during the flight to protect the health of passengers and prevent the spread of the disease.

Upon their arrival at Van Don International Airport in Quang Ninh Province, all passengers and crew members were given health checks and quarantined as per regulation.

Following the Prime Minister’s directions, domestic authorities and Vietnam’s overseas representative offices will continue preparing plans to fly Vietnamese citizens home, depending on the citizens’ needs and the country’s quarantine capacity.
