Hello, i used to live in FL for about 4 years (2001 -2005) with a student visa. In that amount of time, I accumulated a great deal of debt on my Bank of America card ($8000). I was able to get a Social Security due to the fact that I moved pre 9/11 and they were still handing those out to foreigners.
About 3 years ago I had to move back home (central america) and about 1 yr ago due to financial difficulties I had to stop paying my card (payment was about $250/month) to pay more important things such as food and housing back in my home country.
I have a 10 yr tourist visa that is set to expire on 2014, I wanted to know if this debt with a credit card company can stop me from getting my tourist visa renewed once I apply in a few years?
