TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Vietnam sent a special flight to Taiwan Monday (Sept. 21) to take 289 migrant workers home who had been interned after overstaying their legal residency period on the island.
Taking off from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Monday afternoon, the flight allowed the workers to spend next month’s Mid-Autumn Festival with their families, CNA reported.
