I think it is common and makes fine sense to invest (in a business or property that you might rent out for example) in an area you are educated about and have researched. Many people used to purchase investment properties or businesses in Las Vegas when I was an agent there without seeing them or coming... however they studied and researched the rate of appreciation during that time and made their investment.
Investing in a business abroad is another story. Many items vary in another country and it can be quite a struggle to start a business without having been there or lived there. Anything is possible, just may be quite difficult having not been there to start a business! Best wishes.
