Vietnam to bring home thousands of citizens from Taiwan, Japan, Korea

In implementing the Government's direction on organizing repatriation flights to welcome Vietnamese citizens from Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan to their homeland, Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan has sent a request to Quang Ninh, Da Nang, Khanh Hoa, and Can Tho to urgently set up a quarantine area to meet entry requirements.

According to the Ministry of Transport, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has been working with domestic airlines to develop a plan to carry out flights landing at Van Don, Da Nang, Cam Ranh, and Can Tho airports.

Vietnamese nationals returning home on these flights will conduct self-pay isolation at hotels or other accommodation facilities for imported people, to ensure safety against COVID-19 infection. It is expected that the maximum number of citizens entering weekly is 3,300, divided equally among the four airports, said PLO.
