The Brazilian Real (BRL) is the official currency of Brazil. Its plural is Reais and it uses the symbol R$. The modern real was brought in by the Central Bank of Brazil in 1994 to steady the Brazilian economy. The real is divided into 100 centavos or hundredths, and the word means ‘real’ or ‘royal’ in Portuguese.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15.  Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
