FUKUOKA, March 3, Kyodo
A Chinese woman in her 30s has been deported from Japan for illegally working as a tour guide for foreign tourists in a southwestern Japan city and getting paid for taking them to duty-free shops, investigative sources said Thursday.
The woman, who was in Japan on a dependent visa, is believed to have earned about 30 million yen ($263,000) from duty-free shops in Fukuoka for taking tourists to the shops between May and November last year.
She was also ordered to pay fines for violating immigration laws by working as a tour guide without a work permit or proper license, they said.
