230 Vietnamese citizens arrive home safely from Chinese Taiwan

230 Vietnamese citizens from Taiwan (China) were repatriated home safely on September 9 on a flight conducted by budget Vietjet Air in coordination with Vietnamese and Taiwanese authorities and the Vietnam Economic-Cultural Office in Taipei.


Passengers on board are mostly the elderly, pregnant women, workers with expired labour contracts, those suffering from underlying diseases and labour injuries, students who concluded their curricula, travellers and other especially disadvantaged cases.

Upon landing at Can Tho international airport, they were put under quarantine in line with regulations.

Security, safety and hygiene measures were strictly implemented during the flight to protect their health and prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Upon landing at Can Tho International Airport in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, those on board received health check-ups and were sent to concentrated quarantine facilities in line with regulations regarding COVID-19 prevention and control.

There will be more repatriation flights in the coming time to bring home Vietnamese citizens with disadvantaged circumstances, depending on their need and the country’s quarantine capacity.
