More than 860 South Korean workers and their families have been granted exceptions so they can enter Vietnam.
This is the first time that the Vietnamese government, which has been banning the entry of foreigners because of the coronavirus, has allowed the families of workers to come along as well.
200 people made their way to Vietnam earlier this week, 300 are to leave tomorrow and the rest are to leave next week.
Since March, Vietnam has granted such exceptions to almost 3,5-hundred South Korean workers and students.
