Basically you need to be able to prove you have a regular income source and that your expenses do not exceed your income. Most credit card companies also want to see a good credit history.
One alternative is to get a pre-paid, secured credit card where you give the credit company say $500 and you get a credit card with a $500 limit. You use the card and pay it off every month to show you are a good credit risk and then they will gradually raise your credit limit until they are confident that you can, and will, pay your debt. At some point they will refund you your security deposit but it takes time. You can view them holding your deposit as a forced savings plan which isn't so bad.
First know how to use it and have a purpose. Credit cards help build credit history and if you don't have any history you may find it harder to obtain a low interest rate. You have to provide personal infomation (SS# and address) so be careful you are applying on a sucure website or at an establishment where you can trust your information will not be shared with others.
You essentially need an income and then your credit score will dictate the kind of credit card you can apply for. If you have good credit, then you can apply for "good credit" credit cards, if you bad credit then you must apply for "bad credit" credit cards, and so on.
Applying for a new credit card can be done in person, online, on the telephone or through the mail. Filling out a credit application is normally a fairly standard process that requires basic pieces of personal information regardless of which company is issuing the credit card.
