Hi all, first time poster so apologies in advance for any newbie errors...
I am writing a document for multinational companies here in Colombia which details the legal rights and obligations of non Colombians who are hired or contracted by the multinational to work in Colombia, and in the interests of accuracy and consistency I am looking for the best term to describe such workers. Here are some terms I am considering
a) Non-national: instinctively my choice but I have read that some consider this term oxymoronic in that it may imply “having no nationality”
b) Foreigner: The closest translation of the “extranjero” we would use in Spanish but it doesn’t seem appropriate to me
c) Resident alien: ?
d) Any other/better suggestions
Thanks in advance
