This chapter discusses briefly the situation of third-country nationals that comprises of nationals who are legally resident in a Member State other than the UK, Ireland and Denmark, and who can rely on the four EC Directives on legal migration. It deals primarily with the rights of family members of Union citizens who are not nationals of a Member State, their situation is directly linked to their relationship with a Union citizen. The chapter briefly addresses the concept of a 'Union citizen'. Third-country nationals of a number of countries enjoy special treatment in respect of entry and/or residence rights on the basis of an Association/ Partnership Agreement.
