There are a couple different options. You can see if the building will allow you to pay 6 months or 12 months up front. Also, option is a US based guarantor.
Or there is a third option, a company called Insurent, you will pay them a fee to be your guarantor. Those are really the three best options for you. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
All the best,

You might offer extra security to the landlord to make up for the lack of credit history.
I do suggest getting a local credit card as quickly as possible and make a small charge every month that is paid off immediately.
Also establishing local bank accounts will help (checking, savings) and if you are employed with a local company, that is a plus. Perhaps your employer or someone else locally might agree to co-sign while you establish credit.
