The dispatch, signed by Deputy Transport Minister Le Anh Tuan, explained that the decision is made as quarantine facilities in Hanoi have become overloaded and unable to accommodate more people.

The CAAV is asked to inform all airlines to stop the transport of Vietnamese citizens to the Noi Bai Airport until the end of March 31.
