VGP – The Vietnamese Consulate General in Fukuoka prefecture, Japan, has kept contact with the Japanese functional agencies and the Vietnamese community in the region to update information and search for two Vietnamese interns who went missing after Super Typhoon Haishen hit Japan.

Super Typhoon Haishen leaves two persons dead, four missing, including two Vietnamese interns and more than 100 injured Monday as it batters almost the whole of Japan's southwestern main island of Kyushu.

The Consulate General confirmed that two Vietnamese interns have gone missing after Super Typhoon Haishen swept through Kyushu Island, southwest of Japan, on early September 7.

The interns were working at the Aioigumi Joint Stock Company in Miyazaki prefecture, located on Kyushu Island.

The Japanese Government has directed local police and rescue forces to actively search for the victims.

The Consulate General will maintain contact with the Japanese authorities and the Vietnamese community to update information and be ready to implement citizen protection measures.

The Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a letter to the Department of Overseas Labor Management at the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, the Departments of Foreign Affairs of the central provinces of Thanh Hoa and Nghe An to ask relevant enterprises, which sent the apprentices to Japan, to inform their families and ensure their full legitimate interests are met.

Those seeking support can call the hotlines of the Vietnamese Embassy in Japan at 81 (0) 80-3590-9136 and 81 (0) 80-3609-5011; the Vietnamese Consulate General in Fukuoka 81 (0) 80- 3984-6668 and 81 (0) 80-4279-7302; or the citizen protection switchboard 84.981.84.84 .84.
