About Us

Who We Are

Arkansas Global Connect was founded by Arkansans with decades of experience in diplomacy, visa adjudication, law, farming, forestry, small business, lobbying and accountancy. Our strategic partners have additional decades of experience handling all aspects of logistics and compliance for legal foreign workers when U.S. workers are not available. We combine everything you need to ensure a reliable work force year after year. 

How We Work

As soon as you contact us, we will walk you through all aspects of hiring seasonal workers from abroad. If you are interested, we then introduce you to an experienced immigration attorney who handles the required government authorizations. We will then work with our office on the ground in Honduras to recruit workers who are experienced in the jobs you need filled and highly likely to comply with immigration requirements. We then take care of the logistics to get the workers to their job site on time and without hassle. We are committed to the Employer Pays Principle when it comes to processing foreign worker visas. This means visa candidates do not pay fees of any kind to work in the United States. While the ordinary employer/employee relationship will develop once workers arrive at the worksite, we are available to help everything go smoothly throughout the contracted period. Above all, we act with integrity, seeking the mutual benefit of employers and workers. We do this because it is the right thing to do and because we know this is the way to ensure a reliable workforce year after year.

Why We Do It

Arkansas Global Connect was founded on the premise that legal seasonal work offers an honorable solution to multiple problems. American businesses are desperate for reliable labor and U.S. workers are simply not available for many seasonal occupations. This not only harms individual operations but the entire U.S. economy and our food security. In 2018, Dr. Stephen Bronars, Ph.D., of the University of Chicago, studied the effect of the H-2B seasonal work visa program. His research found each H-2B worker supports the jobs of 3.2 American workers.

At the same time, thousands of hard-working Hondurans want to provide for their families but there are not nearly enough employment opportunities in their communities. Legal seasonal work visas allow these individuals to make a good salary while building their futures in their home countries.

By matching hard-pressed employers with talented job seekers, we have every expectation that countless lives will be transformed, the migration crisis significantly reduced, and the U.S. economy strengthened.
