The right box is ticked, if not all apply the conditions referred to in the left-hand box on the applicant (for example, because she never had an apartment in the Federal Republic of Germany or a Fort train for more than 25 years is back), he or she personally and directly acquired familiarity with the political conditions in the Federal Republic of Germany but instead for other, similar reasons and is currently affected by them.
