The repatriation effort was a collaborative undertaking between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the Ministry of Public Security, and representative offices of Vietnam in Myanmar, according to MoFA.
So far, 1,020 Vietnamese citizens have been brought home on nine flights from northern Shan state of Myanmar, with the entire cost of repatriation covered by the government.
With the spirit of international solidarity, Vietnam has also supported Egypt, Malaysia, and Singapore to evacuate their citizens from Myanmar to safe places.

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 legal rights and interests.
