A tourist from the Ukraine in her 30s who overstayed her visa was detained by immigration authorities today (Sunday), after an investigation had seen through her disguise as a haredi woman.

The woman had come to Israel on a visa for a limited period of time and appears to have stayed in the country to work after the visa expired.

She had been working in domestic employment, in violation of the law, and was taken for a hearing in front of a judge before being deported.

Immigration authorities have had experience with impostors before, as people in the country illegally try to throw police off their scent.
