So if you're talking about literal travel across a sea, use oversea: I work in oversea shipping. Overseas is used in front of a noun to describe things relating to countries across the sea from your own country. Overseas has a similar meaning to 'foreign', but is more formal. British English: overseas ADJECTIVE. You use overseas to describe things that involve or are in foreign countries, usually across a sea or an ocean. He has returned from his long overseas trip.
