Despite surging infections, domestic authorities and Vietnamese overseas representative offices, under Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s recent instructions, are making plans to bring home more Vietnamese nationals based on their needs and the nation’s current quarantine capacity.

It was not the first time Vietnamese people stranded in a foreign country had been brought home, with such repatriation flights being testament to Vietnam’s motto of “No one left behind”.

Earlier, on July 29-30, Vietnamese authorities and representative offices in the US and Vietnam Airlines coordinated with the US relevant agencies to conduct a flight bringing home nearly 300 Vietnamese citizens from San Francisco (the US) and Narita (Japan) airports.

A special flight carrying 219 Vietnamese citizens (129 have tested positive for COVID-19) previously living in Equatorial Guinea landed safely at Noi Bai International Airport a couple of days ago./.
