According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the people living in Nigeria and Cameroon were brought home on a flight conducted by the Ethiopian flag carrier, while those in Malaysia returned on a Vietnam Airlines flight.

The repatriation flight from Africa was arranged on June 24 with support from the Vietnamese Embassy in Nigeria in collaboration with local authorities. 90 Vietnamese citizens in Nigeria and Cameroon boarded a flight operated by the Ethiopian flag carrier from Lagos city, Nigeria to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

On June 25, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia arranged a Vietnam Airlines flight which took the passengers from Africa, along with over 40 Vietnamese people stranded in the country, home.

All the passengers and the Vietnam Airlines crew members were sent to quarantine right after landing at Tan Son Nhat Airport in Ho Chi Minh in line with regulations.

This is among many repatriation flights arranged by the Vietnamese authorities to help local students and people with illness and difficulties from virus-hit areas return home.
