Foreign guy theres no reason for you to need your credit report if you haven't been in the states for only a few months YOU have NO CREDIT history to track or very little almost non existence just keep paying on time and in full whenever possible and if you don't have a credit card yet I suggest the Capital One Quicksilver One Mastercard it has 1.5% cashback with no limits on the amount of cashback you can get and as long as you spend $2600 per year the annual fee of $39 is paid for by the cashback rewards just remember to keep your utilization below 20% ie: $500 limit keep it under $100.....which means you'd have to pay the bill off every week or week an a half to keep utilization low and meet the $2600 mark for free annual fee through cashback.....easiest card to get on the market and since your a foreigner I doubt you have a credit card

Thanks JRHenry.

Can you suggest me when should i start requesting / applying for credit cards at various shopping stores.... like 6 months or 12months... etc..

As recently it was not successful at one of the stores.. and they said i will be receiving the mail. It could have happen due to insufficient informtaion with credit bureau or so.

But score is coming up in CK.... I have secure credit card from my bank too from 3 months...
