The relief flight of MAI (Myanmar Airways International) landed at Yangon International Airport at 8 pm on 21 July bringing a total of 109 Myanmar nationals back home via Incheon International Airport.
Due to the suspension of international commercial flights during the COVID-19 pandemic, Myanmar has been repatriating its citizens stranded in foreign countries.
Among these returnees, 43 persons are from Republic of Korea while 66 are from Egypt, Greek, Canada, Belgium, Norway, Japan, France, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany and US.
As they arrived in Yangon, officials from the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports, and the Yangon Region government helped for their 21-day quarantine period in line with the regulations of immigration and medical checks.
To bring back the Myanmar citizens who are stranded in foreign countries in relief flights and charter flights in accordance with the instructions from National-Level Central Committee for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs cooperated with the relevant ministries and Myanmar embassies from respective countries and brought back a total of 1,873 citizens via Incheon International Airport of Republic of Korea to date.— MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
