The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the literature regarding the intercultural communication competence (ICC) into two distinctive aspects: historical development of ICC from 1960 till now and the differences in nature of ICC models. The first portion discusses briefly about the remarkable contributions by the intercultural researchers in different eras in the literature of ICC. On the other side, the second portion comprehends that how the existing models of intercultural competence are different from each other. The second portion is further categorized into five exclusive types of the models of ICC; Compositional, Co-orientational, Developmental, Adaptational and Causal Process Models. These causal process models are claimed to be culture general models of ICC and can translate well among multiple cultural perspectives. Due to the dominance of Western context in these models, it is an upsurge need to relook at the recent model of ICC from the Non-western context.
