Maybe even one step further: find out whether the contributor has an
account on our gitlab (same email? Used their github account for
authentication?) and fork the repo for them, then copy their github
branch to this fork and open the MR.

I like it!
Although I think in a lot of the cases people who already have a account will know not to submit PRs at GitHub :-)

Isn’t a mention on our gitlab instance enough in that case?

Probably, yes
