The ministry tasked the Vietnamese embassies in the region to work closely with local authorities and diplomatic corps to deploy citizen protection measures and maintain regular contact with the Vietnamese communities to keep constantly updated on expat communities' information.

The move came after the complicated and escalating tension between Israel and Iran.

Vietnamese citizens are advised to temporarily stay away from areas of conflict, keep updated on the situation, carry out necessary safety measures, strictly comply with regulations of local authorities, avoid large gatherings and limit travel.

In case of emergency, the ministry suggested that Vietnamese citizens should contact the embassy in Israel at +972-50-818-6116, +972-52-727-4248 and +972-50-994-0889, the embassy in Iran at +98 21 22411670 and +98 9306 459 865, or the Vietnamese foreign ministry’s citizen protection hotline at +84 981 84 84 84./.
