Buy a house in FL, get a green card?

Asked by Akin, Florida State, FL Fri May 8, 2009

There is a rumor in the internet that buying a house in Florida will spare a green card for its owner. Is it true? I live in Turkey and am seriously considering it.

Akin, I did find it being discussed in a newspaper from Bulgaria....…

I thought your question was interesting as I was unaware of any such policy. I looked around a bit and found the idea being discussed by some as something the Gov. should consider/do. I think those discussions and the program mentioned in the Bulgarian newspaper have been combined together as if everybody could get a Green card.

If you google "Green card fl buy house" you will find many current articles ect.. about the topic. I even saw your question on page 2..........

I seriously doubt this. Green cards are issued by the Federal government and the state of florida has no jurisdiction there. in order to get a green card,you must have a permanent job in the United States among other requirements.
