I am Abdullah from iraq i had studied an English course for six months in MMU university/ Malana Ambala / since 2015 
I had got an adhesive visa label on my passport of the study visa to enter india on 23 December 2014 to study an English course. 
I finished my course and depaterd india on 13 May 2015 . I got my certificate from the university and everything was fine . 
My problem is nowadays i want to apply for a Nonimmigrant visa at the American embassy in Baghdad, therefore, one of their requirements to bring them my police certificate from my current country and any country that i lived more than six months . 
So that means  i have to bring a police certificate from India in order to give me the ability to apply for Nonimmigrant visa 
I have questions : 
1- must i get my police certificate from india ? Or what to do in this case if i have to ? 
2- is my visa and my staying in india involved with police certificate, or study visa does not qualify their holder to get police certificate? 
3- can i get my police certificate from the india embassy Baghdad?  If i can please give the instructions to get it .

You will need a police certificate from India.   Ask about it in the consulate in Baghdad.   


Every country is different. My wife is from the Philippines and we applied for her spousal visa while in Mexico.  She had to go to the Embassy in Mexico City for the form and notarization and then send it to her friend in the Philippines to obtain.


You posted in the Fiance Visa Section.  Don't get the police certificate until your 129F is approved.  If you are actually obtaining a different visa , ask the moderators to move your posting.
