The citizens included pregnant women, children under the age of 18, persons with severe illnesses, and laborers with expired or cancelled contracts.

Amidst the complicated developments of the pandemic and travel restrictions imposed by many countries, the flight was arranged to land in Kuwait and Qatar to pick up Vietnamese citizens.

Earlier, the Vietnamese Embassy in Kuwait had actively worked with Kuwaiti authorities to prepare the necessary procedures concerning the grant of flight permit and permission to allow Vietnamese citizens in Egypt to enter Kuwait to take the flight home.

At the same time, the ambassadors and diplomatic officials of the Vietnamese embassies in Kuwait, Qatar and Egypt directly arrived at the airports and coordinated with airlines and authorities of the host nations to instruct the citizens to complete the necessary procedures.

With the goal of ensuring citizens’ health and curbing the spread of the disease, Bamboo Airways strictly implemented measures regarding security, safety and epidemiological hygiene during the flight.

Immediately upon their arrival at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, all the passengers and crew members on board received medical check-ups and were put under concentrated quarantine at the designated areas in the southern region in line with regulations.

On the basis of the pandemic’s developments in the country and the world, citizens’ aspirations and local quarantine capacity, more flights will be arranged in the near future to repatriate Vietnamese citizens./.
