A. The Fuqahaa have stated that it is preferable that one slaughters the Qurbani with one’s own hands or at least witness his Qurbani being slaughtered in front of him. Nevertheless, if you have your Qurbani done overseas, it will be valid and permissible.
If you have your animal slaughtered overseas (eg; in Pakistan or India) and the day of Eid is one day before or after Eid in your country (USA), the country in which the animal is slaughtered will be taken into consideration. Therefore, if the day of Eid falls one or two days before USA in India or Pakistan and the Qurbani animal is slaughtered on that day, the Qurbani will be valid.  (ad-Durrul Mukhtar, Vol: 6, Pg: 318, Darul Fikr)
