The Embassy made the warning after it and the Consulate General in Canada received reports that some organizations and individuals were collecting deposits to organize flights to bring Vietnamese citizens in Canada back to Vietnam.

The Embassy affirmed that Vietnamese representative agencies in Canada are actively coordinating with authorized agencies back in Vietnam to respond to the wish to go back to Vietnam of Vietnamese citizens in accordance with the Vietnamese Prime Minister’s instructions.

Under the Government’s instruction, priority will be given to children under 18 years old, the elderly and the sick when repatriation flights are arranged, the Embassy said.

After such flights are licensed by the Government, the representative agencies will officially notify the citizens of the flights and relevant information.

The Embassy asked the citizens to stay vigilant, and not to provide their personal information and engage in financial transactions with organizations and individuals that use the name of the representative agencies to collect money for unlicensed flights.

Vietnamese representative agencies in Canada have received more than 1,100 applications registering for repatriation flights so far, which have been transferred to competent agencies at home for consideration.
