Because of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic, many countries and territories around the globe have imposed restrictions on entry and exit and stopped transit services while many airlines have cancelled their flights.

In accordance with guidance of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), Vietnamese representative offices abroad have been exerting efforts in supporting Vietnamese citizens stranded at international airports to return home.

The MOFA warned Vietnamese citizens against travelling and returning to Vietnam at the moment. They are asked to follow COVID-19 preventive measures, regularly update regulations of places they are staying at and of airlines to prepare required documents to take the trip.

Citizens could be stranded in foreign airports if they do not have necessary documents or there is a sudden change in policies of countries and territories and the carriers.

In case of emergency, they are recommended to contact the citizen protection hotlines at official websites of Vietnamese representative offices and of the Consular Department under the MOFA +84 981 84 84 84.
