The 37th relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines landed at Yangon International Airport yesterday bringing back a total of 144 Myanmar citizens stranded in Singapore.
Moreover, the 30 Myanmar seamen who expired their employment contracts and stranded in France and Spain were also brought to home by the Korean Air flight organized by Myanmar Embassy in Paris in the same 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 14- day quarantine at specific places or designated hotels, followed by the 7-day home quarantine.
To bring back the Myanmar seamen and citizens in accordance with the instructions of National-Level Central Committee on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is working together with the relevant ministries, Myanmar embassies from respective countries and shipping companies.
