BRL refunds

Bank transfer

In most cases, TransferWise can refund BRL bank transfer payments as long as we have your money and your transfer has not yet been completed. The time it takes to refund a bank transfer depends on the amount you paid ― it takes 1–2 working days for refunds under 9150 BRL, and 2–5 working days for refunds over 9,150 BRL.  


In most cases, TransferWise can also refund a boleto payment if we still have your money and your transfer has not yet been completed. We will ask you for the following details:

  • Bank name
  • Branch number
  • Account number
  • Account type
  • Account holder name
  • CPF

We’ll also need the proof of payment of your boleto, which must show your name and bank details. Once we have this information, it takes 1–2 working days for the boleto to be refunded. 

Additional notes

Please be aware that the CPF you enter during transfer creation must be your own, and must be active. If the number is wrong, or does not match your details as entered on TransferWise, our partner bank in Brazil will need to fully verify you in order to refund your money to you.

It can take up to 2 working days for a boleto to clear to our account. If your transfer is set up at the end of the month, your boleto may not clear to our account until the new month has begun. If this is the case, the amount of that boleto will go towards your monthly limit for the new month. For example, if you set up a transfer on the 31st January, and the boleto clears on the 2nd February, the amount of that boleto will count towards your 9,000 BRL limit for February. 

The limit of 50,000 BRL applies from 1st April to 31st March. If you wish to send more than 50,000 BRL within this time, this is possible. We do, however, need to ask you to send us some additional information

Ouvidoria service

If you make a transfer to or from BRL, we provide an Ouvidoria service. Because TransferWise is a European company, this is only for our Brazilian customers. At the moment, it's only available by email. 

If you have an issue that hasn't been resolved by our customer support team, you can send your case to the Ouvidoria. You'll get a response within 2 business days, and a final response within 10 business days.
