Focus: Turkey Expo
ILW offers limited EB-5 exhibition opportunities in Turkey.

  • Turkey has 80 million people, 18th largest country in the world. Turkey is NOT a poor country, its GDP is $751 billion, also 18th largest in the world (in other words, it has a large number of millionaires and deca-millionaires).
  • ILW has prior experience in Turkey, we were there twice in 2015. We have 4 agents on the ground in Turkey, including 3 Turkish law firms (these do NOT file any US immigration petitions, nor do they provide any US immigration advice, but they can and do assist with local Turkish law matters).
  • Due to recent events, our agents are reporting huge increase in interest in EB5 in Turkey. We expect Turkish 2016 numbers may be three times greater than 2015, making Turkey an important EB5 market for Regional Centers.
  • The expo will feature a US immigration law firm with a native-Turkish speaking attorney - with specific prior experience in source of funds for I-526 filings for Turkish nationals. The US attorney will explain the immigration process to Turkish attendees of the Expo but will not sell any project security, representation will be confined strictly to US immigration law.
  • Our agents on the ground report that all is safe in Istanbul at the moment. ILW would never even consider a trip to a danger zone.
