Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar ordered the Population and Immigration Authority to allow Rose Fostanes, the winner of reality show X-Factor, to work as a singer in Israel.
Fostanes is currently banned from engaging in music for money as she has a staying permit only valid to employment in the field of nursing. As per her request, Minister Sa'ar decided to allow Fostanes a working permit as an artist in the country. The permit will be subject to the approval of her current employer – her patient's family.
