No...you might be referring to the EB-5 GREEN CARD INVESTORS
Under certain conditions, foreign investors can acquire a green card to gain permanent residence for themselves and their family into the United States by buying or investing in certain U.S. businesses. These EB-5 visas are specifically for owners and investors in businesses that will provide jobs for Americans. The EB-5 is a visa that may be granted for certain substantial investments in U.S. that create or protect American jobs. Only 10,000 VISAs are granted annually and the entire process takes more than 2 years. An investment must meet several criteria in order to qualify the investor for permanent residence. These criteria include but are not limited to:
Showing that "substantial" investment or funds are available and committed to the investment;
The investment must be in an active business as opposed to passive investment such as purchasing a home
The investment must create or protect jobs for U.S. persons.
The minimum amount of investment necessary to obtain an EB-5 visa depends upon the type of business involved, and the number of jobs created,as well as the form and/or the location of the investment. Generally, the investment must be $1,000,000. But in some instances can be as little as $500,000.
