Medical staff will be given priority. State employees dispatched to the south must present relevant papers by management agencies.

The CAAV will also arrange flights to repatriate passengers to their hometowns and localities which are required to have plans to receive them.

People living in localities which are implementing social distancing measures and wishing to travel abroad will be assisted to transfer from domestic to international flights conducted by Vietnamese airlines.

The CAAV will also support the transport of goods and medical equipment through Tan Son Nhat International Airport, saying the operation of the flights complies with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO)’s policies on COVID-19 control.

The CAAV will request that airport authorities co-ordinate with local centres for disease control in order to disinfect vehicles, equipment, and airport areas to curb the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
