On May 7 and 8, Vietnamese authorities and representative agencies in the US, Vietnam Airlines and relevant US agencies worked together to bring back home the citizens from San Francisco Airport.

The passengers included many children under 18 years old, overseas students who don’t have accommodation due to dormitory closures, the elderly, the sick and those living in difficult circumstances.

Upon arriving at Van Don Airport in the northern province of Quang Ninh, the passengers and cabin crew members were quarantined in line with regulations.

To conduct the flight, the Vietnamese Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Transport, the Vietnamese Embassy and representative agencies in the US worked with domestic agencies and US authorities to assist the airline in completing procedures to bring home the citizens.

Many of the citizens had reportedly been stranded in San Francisco International Airport in recent times as they awaited flights to return home, with some stranded since March 22.

The Vietnamese Consulate General in San Francisco and other Vietnamese representative agencies in the US tried to assist stranded Vietnamese citizens in terms of accommodation, travelling and pandemic prevention measures.

In the coming days, more flights from other countries will bring back Vietnamese citizens home depending on the pandemic's developments, quarantine capacity of Vietnamese localities, and the demand of Vietnamese citizens living overseas.
