Chandigarh, no problem!
For some reason, there is a continuing decline in Permanent Resident Travel Documents (PRTD) in Hong Kong and Beijing, where the acceptance rates as it is have been low as compared to those from Chandigarh since 2012.
When a permanent resident is outside Canada and has an expired Maple Leaf Card, in order to board an airplane for Canada they will need to get a PRTD if they are from a country that needs a visa to enter Canada (such as China or India). American or British nationals do not have this issue as they do not need a visa to board a plane for Canada.
When the person applies for a PRTD and gets one, it means the visa office has determined they have retained their permanent resident status. But, if the person applies for a PRTD and it is refused, it means the visa office has determined they have lost their permanent resident status.
Lexbase, Canada’s leading immigration publication under well-known lawyer Richard Kurland, that paid for a Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) private data run from June 2015 that provides a look at the acceptance rates for PRTD at every visa office for 2014, 2013 and 2012. The overall three year trend is a consistent reduction in the global acceptance rates of PRTDs. The highest volume for PRTD is the Asia / Pacific Region.
* Most applications processed in Hong Kong were refused (39% PRTD acceptance rate). Hong Kong has seen a continuing decline in PRTD acceptance rates from 54% in 2012, to 47% in 2013, to 39% in 2014.
* There is a continuing decline in PRTD acceptance rates in Beijing from 69% in 2012, to 58% in 2013, to 54% in 2014.
* By contrast, the PRTD acceptance rate in Chandigarh went from 81% in 2012, to 76% in 2013, to 86% in 2014.
