Facebook Groups Can Now Screen New Members With A Questionnaire by technative(f): 10:38am On May 16, 2017
Facebook says this feature is now rolled out to 100% of group admins globally. A Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch:

“Screening new membership requests requires time and legwork for admins – particularly for groups built around focused passions or purpose.
