Around 310 Vietnamese citizens were brought home from Malaysia on Sunday, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported on Monday.

This was a joint effort of competent Vietnamese agencies, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia, the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and competent Malaysian agencies.

The passengers included those under 18 years old, elderly and sick people, workers with expired visas and labour contracts, stranded tourists and students who did not have accommodations due to dormitory closures.

The Vietnamese Embassy sent officials to the airport to help the citizens with necessary procedures.

Upon their arrival at Can Tho international airport in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, the passengers were kept under quarantine and had a medical check-up in line with regulations.

In the coming days, more flights will be arranged to bring back Vietnamese citizens home from other countries depending on the pandemic's developments, quarantine capacity of Vietnamese localities, and demand of Vietnamese citizens living abroad.

Another 161 Vietnamese citizens – including one pregnant woman and two children – were brought back on a repatriation flight from San Francisco, the US, on May 9 and being quarantined in the central province of Thanh Hoa all tested negative for the coronavirus on their first test, Thanh Hoa Centre for Disease Control announced on Sunday.
