According to the website Ynet, Fostanes is on a special caregiver visa and this only permits her to work as a caregiver in the said country. The kind of work permit she holds prevents her from earning money in any other position.
A spokesperson from Israel’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority said unequivocally that under no situation can the Filipina be paid as a singer in Israel but she can perform for free.
Fostanes’ triumph has just turned into a dilemma and even she does not know what is going to happen next.
Fostanes, who is openly gay, continually impressed Israel’s X Factor judges and viewers with her renditions of “Bohemian, Rhapsody,” “You and I,” “Because of You,” and her winning piece Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.”
