Yeah via email. Under review email in the start of September.Did they tell you when entered the review stage? Or how did you know? Last year their online portal told you where you were out, this year I have been in the dark :/
I believe someone here who got the “on hold” update was given an II. Think it might be on this page or the page before. On hold in September and still holding on!Been on hold since 10/4. Has anyone in the on hold gang gotten an II?
I got an II yesterday too and scheduled my interview today! Earliest available dates were in mid-March. I was put on "hold for possible interview" a few weeks ago so I'm very happy to have this!
