The Vietnamese nationals returning from the neighbouring country included minors under the age of 18, students without accommodation due to the closure of their schools and dormitories, the elderly, sick individuals, tourists, and migrant workers who had been left stranded due to the novel coronavirus epidemic.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand has been actively supporting citizens to register for the flight, complete the necessary ticket purchasing procedures, and send officials to directly co-ordinate with the airline as a means of helping people finalize the necessary procedures before being allowed to board.

The flight enforced a strict range of measures to ensure the safety of everyone onboard, with passengers receiving a medical check-up and being quarantined upon arrival in line with regulations set by the Ministry of Health.

Under the Prime Minister’s direction, the nation will continue to arrange flights to bring its citizens home depending on the pandemic's future developments, the quarantine capacity of Vietnamese localities, and demand among Vietnamese nationals living abroad.
