Taipei, April 22 (CNA) A Vietnamese woman who received a resident visa for investing
in Taiwan will be deported after she was found to be “working as an intern” at a dumpling store.
Immigration and labor officials said the woman, Nguyen Thi Luyen, was in uniform making dumplings during a raid on a Ba Fang Yun Ji franchise dumpling shop in Zhonghe in New Taipei on Sept. 7, 2016.
Labor officials said Nguyen will be fined NT$30,000 (US$990) for violating the Employment Service Act because her employer had not applied for a permit on her behalf to work in Taiwan.
The owner of the store said the woman had been working as an intern for about five or six days, learning the skills of making noodles and dumplings as well as ordering supplies from franchise headquarters. [FULL STORY]
