HKD refunds

Bank transfer

In most cases, TransferWise can refund HKD bank transfer payments as long as we have your money and your transfer has not yet been completed. 

The refund must be sent back to the account it came from. So, we may ask for your bank account details to return your money. Once you give us these details, refunds take 1–2 working days to appear back in your account. 

Debit/credit card

If you cancel a transfer that you paid for by card, we’ll automatically refund the money to the card you paid with. This usually takes 3–5 working days, but can take up to 10 working days to appear back in your account.
