A total of 172 Myanmar nationals stranded in Malaysia because of the suspension of commercial flights returned home by an MAI relief flight yesterday.
Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur organized the relief flight of Myanmar Airways International to repatriate the Myanmar citizens from Malaysia. The flight landed at Yangon International Airport in the evening.
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.
Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, under the guidance of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has been working with relevant organizations in Malaysia to repatriate Myanmar citizens who have no official documents and who were detained in Malaysia by verifying their citizenship.
Until now there have been 35 relief flights that can manage to repatriate Myanmar nationals from Malaysia.— MNA (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
