About Us
Golden Opportunities International, LLC is a work placement service that assists United States employers in the agricultural business find hard-working, reliable employees.

We recruit English speaking people from South Africa and Mexico who want to come to the United States and work. We have 2 offices in South Africa that screen people very well. We also place Mexican employees and have recently partnered with a recruiter in Mexico. It is both wonderful and rewarding to see all the relationships that are built worldwide between employers and their employees.

We work exclusively with the H-2A Visa work program for Agricultural business and the H-2B Visa work program for Non-Agricultural business. The H-2A process takes 60-75 days from the date the paperwork is started to the date the workers receive a permit which allows them to enter the United States. Te H-2B process takes 60-120 days and only 66,000 H-2B visas are issued annually (this amount is subject to change and can be viewed on the USCIS-United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website www.uscis.gov).
We also work with the TN visa program for professionals who are allowed to come in on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) from Mexico, such as Veterinarians, Hotel Managers, Nurses, Social workers, Dentists, Dietitians, and Animal Breeders, etc.

Golden Opportunities is a company that takes pride in its work, and will give the most prompt service to all our clients. Our motto is, “Your Satisfaction Is Our Inspiration.” The riches in life, for us, are to work with people, build lasting relationships with people, and to be there to help when the workload is too much to handle.

We thank the Lord for all the success in our business; after all, we are just the workers. Without our loyal, dedicated clients, who have trusted us with their businesses, we would not be successful. We want to thank every employee that had faith in Golden Opportunities International LLC to match them successfully with employers in the USA. We would also like to thank the employers who make this experience possible for the employees.

About Golden Opportunities International LLC
(USA Office)


My husband, my children and I came to America in 1999. We knew it would not be easy to leave our families and friends behind, but we wanted to live the American dream and realized that we would not be alone. With the help from our Father and very hard work, we know that we can do it. To leave famil y and friends behind that were so precious to us was not easy to do. As a family we are so blessed and cannot thank the Lord enough for all the Blessings we receive every day.

Having had our own businesses in South Africa, I quickly realized the need of the American employer for reliable dependable foreign workers who can speak and understand English. I started Golden Opportunities International LLC in 2001. Today as I look back I realize my husband knew me better than I know myself. I was frustrated that I did not know what type of business I should start in America and he said to me, “Do what you do best, you love working with people, and that is what you need to do.” My dream started one day at Myrtle Beach, SC. In my heart I was uncertain, but I know the saying that  “strength does not come from what you can do; it comes from overcoming the things you thought you cannot do.”
