outlander (n.)

1590s, "a foreigner, a person who is not a native," from outland "foreign land" (see outlandish) + -er (1). Probably on model of Dutch uitlander, German ausländer. In South African English it had a specific sense of "not of Boer birth" (1892) and was a loan-translation of South African Dutch uitlander.
