The work will be resumed from January 28.

The Bac Luan Bridge I border gate which is specialised for entry and exit procedures in Quang Ninh province will maintain working as usual throughout the Tet holidays.

After a nearly-three-year closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bac Luan Bridge I border gate was reopened to carry out immigration procedures for residents and tourists from January 8.

Only 10 days after the reopening, it handled immigration procedures for about 4,000 people.
