Most of the agreements include one or more provisions that determine a worker's coverage based on his or her nationality.
A U.S. national is a U.S. citizen or a person who, although not a U.S. citizen, owes permanent allegiance to the United States. The only persons who are U.S. nationals but not U.S. citizens are American Samoans and natives of Swain's Island.
