The 47th relief flight of Myanmar Airways International organized by the Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur landed at Yangon International Airport bringing back a total of 136 Myanmar nationals including 40 Myanmar citizens who were convicted in Malaysia for various reasons after they were stranded in Malaysia due to the suspension of international flights yesterday evening.
The Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, and the Ministry of Health and Sports arranged 14-day quarantine at specific places or designated hotels, followed by the 7-day home quarantine.
The Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur is working closely with the relevant organizations in Malaysia to bring back Myanmar citizens who have no national verification and who were in detention centres after their citizenship has been identified in accordance with the directives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Myanmar has organized 16 relief flights for repatriation of nationals from Malaysia.—MNA (Translated by EPPA)
