Overseas means related to/ on another continent. You have to cross the sea.
International is related to/ in another country.
So if you live in north USA 5miles from the border, and own a company that also has one bureau in south Canada, 10 miles away, then that is an International company. But the other bureau is _not_ overseas. If you then open a third bureau in Paris, France, then that bureau is indeed overseas.
