    I'm not sure, could be internship in the country or dual nationality or something else. Best contact the company, imo. Or wait for someone better informed on this topic to answer.

    To have an attachment to, or connection with, or knowledge of the culture, customs and ways of living in that region. It's unclear whether they mean some kind of professional affiliation, or just lived experience.

    To share their religion, or have family there, or have lived there for a significant amount of time, or anything else that ties you into the place. I would imagine that they're looking for social factors that would make you want to stay there instead of packing your stuff and going back home once the going gets rough. Considering that you're most likely coming in from abroad, they want to know whether there's something committing foreign candidates to the region, so as to avoid higher turnover of staff.
