Ashraf Ahmed Metwally (2nd, L) receives his lost bag from immigration officers at Tan Son Nhat Airport, HCMC, February 13, 2023.

While on duty on February 11, Major Nguyen Hong Trung, an immigration officer, found the black bag in the seating area designated for those waiting for visa issuance.

Though the airport staff used loudspeakers to find the owner of the bag, no one came to get it.

The officers then checked camera footage and identified Metwally, who had arrived in HCMC on an Emirates flight, to be the bag's owner.

Metwally said he left it behind while he was waiting to complete entry procedures.
