Hundreds of Vietnamese in Canada brought home

Nearly 300 Vietnamese citizens were repatriated from Canada on Thursday in a coordinated effort by Vietnamese agencies, national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and Canadian authorities.

They included many under 18, elderly people, those with illnesses, tourists who had been stranded and students who did not have accommodation due to school closures.  

Upon arriving at Van Don International Airport in the northern province of Quang Ninh, all the passengers and flight crew underwent health checks and were put in quarantine.

Vietnamese authorities and airlines will continue to repatriate more Vietnamese citizens based on local quarantine conditions and the pandemic’s developments.
