The Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday warned Taiwanese citizens traveling to Japan not to use the tourist visa waiver as a guise for working illegally in the country and risk deportation. Lo Koon-tsan (羅坤燦), executive director of the ministry's Committee on Japanese Affairs, said that Taiwanese intending to visit Japan other than for the purpose of tourism must apply for a proper visa. Since Tokyo waived the visa requirement last September, there have been cases where Taiwanese travelers were found doing volunteer or short-term work in Japan without a proper visa. Last year, a total of 605 Taiwanese were denied entry to Japan, compared with 1,088 Chinese and 3,373 South Koreans.
