I lived in the USA from 2005 to 2007. In that time I accumulated credit card and other unsecured debt of $30000. I also had 2 unpaid speeding tickets one in CA and one in VA. I had to leave the country in 2007 due to personal reasons and have not returned since. In the year of 2008-2009 I paid up my speeding tickets. I still have not paid the credit card companies. I have learned that the banks have sold the debt to collection agencies. My question is if I were to apply for a tourist visa in India for the USA woudl this affect my visa decision. I would also like to know if I were to get a visa then would there be any legal implication at immigration or any part there of during my stay in the USA. I would like to visit for a period of 1 month.

The U.S. consultate in India will check your criminal history but your
credit history and default on debt is unlikely to be a factor in its
decision to grant you a tourist visa.
The answer to your last query is likely to be no if your stay in
America is limited merely to one month.
