In general, whoever turns to the lodge with his wish to be a Freemason will receive a written or verbal invitation to submit a written application with his CV. There will be some meetings with brothers of the lodge, which must assure themselves of certain essential conditions:
That the interested/seeker is a free man of good repute, so sincere, honest, free from prejudices against races, religions and political ideas. That he is willing to improve himself positively, can behave tolerantly and has a Christian attitude.
If one is convinced of the "reputation" of the interested/Suchenden, only two conditions have to be fulfilled:
All the brothers of the Lodge must speak for a recording.
2 guarantors/godparents must be prepared to stand by the adjoining party.
