I don't remember them having "tourist" above their heads. Maybe people are just mis-remembering?

I took a peek at the game files and there's no "tourist" tag for display above heads that exists in Get to Work. There is one there for City Living, but that's for actual tourists and a "Jungle Tourist" version for Jungle Adventure.

When I had alien visitors to the lab, they were just obvious to me because I only had like 4 aliens at the time and met them all previously at an alien bar night.

I have actually not seen any tags on CL tourists either but yeah, not sure if they had a tag or not.

 

Not seeing them on CL tourist was the main reason I suggested a thread.

The City Living tourists aren't meant to have a tourist title, at least not according to the file for spawning them. But the English text translation for it exists if they ever wanted to use it - in the files for City Living.

Since there isn't one in the files for Get to Work I assume they never had a title above their heads before and people are misremembering.

OK. Looks like they never had them in CL either so, not an issue.

I got the tourist one on a day where there was thunder and got struck by lightning going to talk to him near the road. Also, the computer doesn’t even have a repair option, just replace.

This is the issue I'm having too, I can't "Repair" I can only "Replace" or "Transform" (if I'm holding the ray gun).
