It should not be affected if you're applying for a visitor or non-immigrant visa.

The answer would depend upon more specific information about the DUI. However, a simple DUI is typically not an outright bar to visa issuance. A DUI conviction can nonetheless be an adverse factor in whether to exercise discretion favorably and issue the visa.
