HÀ NỘI — Six more charter flights were launched over the past couple of days to repatriate Vietnamese citizens from Myanmar, after the first three flights arrived safely in Hà Nội on Tuesday morning.

The repatriation effort was a collaborative undertaking between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the Ministry of Public Security, and representative offices of Việt Nam in Myanmar, according to MoFA.

So far, 1,020 Vietnamese citizens have been brought home on nine flights from the northern Shan state of Myanmar, with the entire cost of repatriation covered by the Government.

With the spirit of international solidarity, Việt Nam has also supported Egypt, Malaysia, and Singapore to evacuate their citizens from Myanmar to safe places.

Most of them are young people, in addition to pregnant women and a few newborns. Many of them were lured into scam casino operations in the north of Myanmar, abandoned by their employers and stranded in the country in the wake of armed conflicts between the Myanmar military and ethnic minority groups in this region.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Myanmar said there are still a number of individuals believed to be Vietnamese citizens stranded in northern Myanmar due to the armed conflict there.

The foreign ministry and embassy will continue their coordination with competent agencies at home and other countries in the region to quickly verify and fly home Vietnamese citizens as soon as possible, ensuring their life and health, as well as their lawful rights and interests.

It warned again that Vietnamese citizens should be cautious of job scams in which swindlers promise them a “well-paid but easy job” in foreign countries, mostly without any qualifications or degree required.

In case of emergency, Vietnamese citizens in Myanmar can phone the Vietnamese Embassy in Myanmar via its citizen protection hotline +959660888998; or the MoFA’s Consular Department via the citizen protection switchboard +84 981 84 84 84, +84 965 41 11 18, or email [email protected]. — VNS
