350 Vietnamese citizens from Japan were brought home safely on a repatriation flight which landed at Noi Bai International Airport on Wednesday.

The flight was arranged by local authorities of the two countries and the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.

The passengers included children aged under 18, the elderly, pregnant women, people with illness, workers whose visas and labour contracts expired, students without residence due to the closure of dormitories, and other people facing difficulties in the country.

All the passengers and the flight crew members were given health check-ups and sent to quarantine areas right after landing in accordance with current regulations on virus prevention.

This is the 42nd repatriation flight arranged since April 24 by the government, bringing home 11,696 Vietnamese citizens stranded abroad due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

More flights will be conducted in the near future to bring Vietnamese nationals home, taking into account domestic quarantine capacity.
