Absolutely. Anyone can APPLY anytime they want. If you've had credit in the past, someone's tracked your financial behavior. It's out there - following you.

No, it does not, and this can be a benefit as well as a big problem. If you have outstanding debts, they will not report to American credit bureaus. However, this can also pose a problem if you are trying to buy a home in another country and you have no credit in that country. Also keep in mind: if this or a similar situation DOES occur, and you need credit, an option is to have an international credit report pulled by your lender (based on the country you are from). It may be your only option, so if you don't keep your credit in good standing in your home country, it may very well come back to haunt you!

CRA's in the US, report the credit history of transactions made only in the US. Therefore credit history from another country would not show up on a report in the US. This does not prevent a prospective creditor from requiring confirmation of the person's previous credit history.

No. Credit reports do not transfer across international lines. This includes Canada to US as well.

No, not in the sense that a person can be legally pursued or have credit denied due to the credit history in another country.

Most credit card companies offer credit cards for consumers with no credit history. The real challenge is getting a credit card with bad credit history.

Other countries use different credit reporting systems. Credit history usually applies to only one country. Even within the same credit card network, information is not shared between different countries. For example, if a person has been living in Canada for many years and then moves to the United States, when they apply for credit cards or a mortgage in the U.S., they would usually not be approved because of a lack of credit history, even if they had an excellent credit rating in their home country and even if they had a very high salary in their home country.

Most international students find it difficult to get a credit card in the U.S. because they have not established a credit history and because they are not U.S. residents. For newly arrived students, you may want to try using a "secured credit card".

The best part is that your secured card is reported as a regular credit card on your credit report. Check with your bank on the secured credit card.
