foreign words in kanji

what i know is that foreign words are written in katakana. but some times i see them in kanji, like:
異邦人 = stranger
愛蘭 = ireland
米国 = america
i know that the "ireland" 's kanji characters are chosen by the pronounciation, but what about the others? specially the "stranger" one.
to be more specific, with foreign words, when do i use katakana, and when to use kanji?
