million-dollar green card
 n.— «Many Israelis looking for alternatives to the H1-B visa are forced to choose what is known as the “million dollar green card.” This option is open to anyone willing to invest at least one million dollars in launching a new business in the US, or expanding an existing one, with the basic requirement that the business must create at least 10 new jobs for American workers (the investor and his family may not be included as workers, although family members will be eligible for green cards).» —“The million dollar visa” by Ran Dagoni in Washington, D.C. Globes (Israel) June 22, 2006.
