A total of 176 Myanmar citizens – 56 stranded in India and 120 in Australia and New Zealand – because of the suspension of commercial flights returned home by relief flights yesterday.
Myanmar Embassy in New Delhi organized the relief flight of Air India to repatriate 56 Myanmar nationals from India, and Myanmar Embassy in Canberra arranged the relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines to bring back the Myanmar citizens in Australia and New Zealand. The two flights landed at Yangon International Airport.
The Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports and the Yangon Region government provided them with proper medical tests and arranged 7-day quarantine at specific places or designated hotels, followed by the 7-day home quarantine.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been working with Myanmar embassies in foreign countries, local ministries and shipping companies/organizations to bring back citizens stranded abroad under the guidance of the National-Level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of COVID-19.—MNA (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
