Bands are getting offers to play internationally and are faced with a litany of issues that with careful planning, can be dealt with so a tour can be profitable. Do you need a tour manager/sound guy/merch person? How do you obtain visa's or work permits? What is a letter of invitation and who sends it to you? Van hire, train or air travel in country? How much merch should you bring? Is a booking agent vital? By planning carefully, an indie band can make money touring internationally even if their name isn't U2.
