No, you don't have to be a resident. If you are a non-citizen, but have a Social Security card or a Tax ID, you can file a bankruptcy. If you don't have a United States ID, but own property in the U.S., you can still file a bankruptcy.

It doesn't matter if you are a US Citizen or not, to file bankruptcy. To be eligible you must either reside in a state, own a business in a state or own property in a state. If you don't have these three, you cannot file bankruptcy also. Also, you must have resided in a state for 180 days prior to filing bankruptcy. Otherwise, no court has jurisdiction over you. By permanently living overseas, you cannot file bankruptcy in the US until you return to the US and PLAN to stay there.

It's very difficult to file without a lawyer, but it can be done. The US government themselves lay out the process at http://www.uscourts.gov/FederalCourts/Bankruptcy/BankruptcyResources/FilingBankruptcyWithoutAttorney.aspx
