To maintain the requisite high standard adopted by such an Order, strict admission criteria have to be met. This entails a Petition for Admission to be completed by the prospective member and returned to the Grand Chancellor for recording. The Grand Master will decide on the suitability of the candidate. The decision of the Grand Master concerning the admission of new members is final and not subject to appeal. The Petition for Admission should be accompanied by the prescribed admission fee which will be returned to the applicant should the Petition fail.
