A Non Resident Nepali (NRN); (Nepali: गैर आवासीय नेपाली, Gair Aawasiya Nepali) is a citizen of Nepal who holds an Nepalese passport and has temporarily emigrated to another country for six months or more for employment, residence, education or any other purpose.

A person of Nepali origin is a person of Nepali origin or ancestry who was or whose ancestors were born in Nepal or nations with Nepalese ancestry but is not a citizen of Nepal and is the citizen of another country. A 'person of Nepali origin might have been a citizen of Nepal and subsequently taken the citizenship of another country.

Other terms with vaguely the same meaning are Overseas Nepali, Nepali origin and expatriate Nepali. In common usage, this often includes Nepali-born individuals (and also people of other nations with Nepalese ancestry) who have taken the citizenship of other countries.

According to the Non Resident Nepali Act, 2007 article II, the word 'Non Resident Nepali' does not include Nepali citizen or citizen of SAARC countries of Nepali descent living in SAARC countries. It further excludes the students and members and staffs of Nepali deplometic mission staying in any foreign country.[14]

The Non Resident Nepali Association was established by the conference held by 11–14 October 2003 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The fourth NRN global conference was held in 13–15 October 2009 in Kathmandu.

The mother tongue languages of Non Resident Nepali are Nepali, Maithili, Bhojpuri, Nepal bhasa, Gurung and Limbu.
