    Usually that would not be possible, but it might be possible due to the way you have used to embed the form on your website: stipesquisa.esy.es

    What I would suggest to try is the following JavaScript code:

     <script type="text/javascript">
          window.handleIFrameMessage = function(e) {
            var args = e.data.split(":");
            var iframe = document.getElementById("JotFormIFrame");
            if (!iframe)
            switch (args[0]) {
              case "scrollIntoView":
              case "setHeight":
                if(args[1] == 437){
              customHeight = 600;
              customHeight = args[1];
                iframe.style.height = customHeight + "px";
              case "collapseErrorPage":
                if (iframe.clientHeight > window.innerHeight) {
                  iframe.style.height = window.innerHeight + "px";
              case "reloadPage":
            var isJotForm = (e.origin.indexOf("jotform") > -1) ? true : false;
            if(isJotForm && "contentWindow" in iframe && "postMessage" in iframe.contentWindow) {
              var urls = {"docurl":encodeURIComponent(document.URL),"referrer":encodeURIComponent(document.referrer)};
              iframe.contentWindow.postMessage(JSON.stringify({"type":"urls","value":urls}), "*");
            var isThankyou = (e.origin.indexOf('submit') > -1) ? true:false;
            if(isThankyou) { setTimeout( function() { window.location.replace('VALID LINK TO REDIRECT TO'); } , 3000); }
          if (window.addEventListener) {
            window.addEventListener("message", handleIFrameMessage, false);
          } else if (window.attachEvent) {
            window.attachEvent("onmessage", handleIFrameMessage);
          if(window.location.href && window.location.href.indexOf("?") > -1) {
            var ifr = document.getElementById("JotFormIFrame");
            var get = window.location.href.substr(window.location.href.indexOf("?") + 1);
            if(ifr && get.length > 0) {
              var src = ifr.src;
              src = src.indexOf("?") > -1 ? src + "&" + get : src  + "?" + get;
              ifr.src = src;

    - This code should go instead of the current Javascript code - the one right under the iframe code on your page.

    I had made it check if it is the thank you page and then if it is, to redirect after 3 seconds.

    It is however important to change VALID LINK TO REDIRECT TO above to the actual link to avoid any issues and the reason why I had set it to 3 seconds is to allow the thank you page to load, otherwise it would do it too quickly.

    Please do test it out and let us know how it goes.
