I want to be a Video Game Designer and as it is not an entry level job, so I want Advice regarding my following questions.

1. Will job as video game QA help me in becoming video game designer?

2. Is entering the industry as video game QA advisable?If not then please suggest alternatives.

3. If yes for QA, and as QA is not permanent job,Is moving out of India(not my QA job openings in India) for QA advisable?If not please suggest alternatives.

Sorry for any typos or any mistakes. Thank you for your time.

1. Probably.
2. Only if you cannot find any other way into the industry.
3. Moving to another country is something you would have to figure out on your own. You would have to figure out how to overcome the legal hurdles, and you would have to figure out the financial problems too. Deciding whether or not it's "worth it" is up to YOU. It's YOUR life.
