European Union[change | change source]
The European Union has a different definition of "foreign national." In the European Union, a person is only thought of as a foreign national if they are not a citizen of any country in the European Union. These people are called "third party nationals," not "foreign nationals."
The United States[change | change source]
In other words, a foreign national is a person who:
- Was born outside the United States; and
- Is a citizen of another country; and
- Has not applied to become a United States citizen through naturalization.
