Anāgāmin – non returner

From Wikipedia

Anāgāmi

In Buddhism, an anāgāmin (Sanskrit; Pāli: anāgāmī, lit. “non-returning”) is a partially enlightened person who has cut off the first five fetters that bind the ordinary mind. Anāgāmins are the third of the four aspirants.

The anāgāmin is not reborn into the human world after death, but into the heaven of the Pure Abodes, where only anāgāmins reside. There they attain full enlightenment (arahantship).
