Comment: Middle East EB-5 Expos
Dubai, UAE March 18, 2017 & Istanbul, Turkey March 20, 2017
ILW offers limited EB-5 exhibition opportunities at Dubai & Turkey EB5 Expos
Info about 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 work with 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 Turkey 2016 numbers may be three times greater than 2015, making Turkey an important EB5 market for Regional Centers.
Info about Dubai:
  • Dubai is a large EB-5 market and a way of accessing high net worth expats from Iran/Middle East, India and Pakistan.
  • ILW has done over a dozen EB-5 events in Dubai for over 3 years.
  • Many expats who have made considerable money in Dubai/Middle East are looking for immigration alternatives given the instability in the region.

Focus: International Students Expos in USA
International students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in Chinese, Korean and Indian students started less than a decade ago and continues. For EB-5 purposes students offer good prospects. We have been conducting events since 2014 educating Students on EB-5 in New York, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Michigan and California. We are expanding these events to other locations in 2017 to cover the entire USA. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. The time frame for the events is determined based on the academic calendar. These are 1 day events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their project or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events.
