Hi, is it possible to use this widget to calculate the distance between Point A and Point B that is overseas? For example: distance between Las Vegas, USA and Paris, France.

Since the widget is using Google Maps API, the overseas distance can be calculated as long as the route has road connectivity. For example, please see the image below:
Unfortunately, it is not possible to calculate the distance as per your example since there is no road connectivity.
Hope this information helps!

Is there some kind of workaround to make the Google Maps API calculate distance when there is no road connectivity?

Unforunately there is no such workaround at this time. The Google Maps API used in the distance calculator also uses the road connectivity. So I don't think it will work if you want to calculate the distance over the air or any other means.
