Israel’s X Factor winner allowed to stay in the country as performer

A Filipina caregiver who won Israel’s The X Factor talent contest last week (ends17Jan14) has been given permission to follow her dreams in Tel Aviv. Immigration Authority officials have extended Rose Fostanes’ visa to allow her to develop a singing career in Israel.
Prior to her big win, the 47 year old’s work visa only allowed her to stay in the country as a carer.
