As Laos continues to maintain closed border gates for most immigration activities until the end of January, the Vietnamese Embassy in the country said Vietnamese people that are working and studying in Laos should return to Vietnam via border gates after registering with the embassy and general consulates in Luang Prabang, Savannakhet and Pakse.

The embassy and general consulates will collect the list and send it to the Lao authorities for review and approval. The list will be uploaded to the website of the embassy and other general consulates.

Over 50,000 Vietnamese have returned to Vietnam from Laos via border gates during the Covid-19 outbreak. In recent days, the number of people wanting to return to Vietnam has sharply increased. Over 1,125 people registered online with the embassy in Vientiane on January 5 alone.
