I'm a student from India and I'll be travelling to Japan on a student visa and stay there for 3 months. I'd like to visit South Korea at the end of my studies and stay there for a week or so, and then return to my home country, India from Korea. Do I need to get a visa to travel to Korea? And is it possible for me to return to India with or without it?

    Welcome to TSE. Visa requirements depend first and foremost on your citizenship; can we assume you hold an Indian passport?

As an Indian citizen, you will need a visa to visit Korea. You're not eligible for the 30-day exemption, as you would need a valid visa from Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the United States.

However, once you get a visa for Korea, you can fly onwards to India.
