The government of Timor Leste has announced that it had once again decided to extend the annual Easter non-working public holidays in Timor Leste by declaring an additional day-off public sector holiday (tolerαnsia pontu) for Maundy Thursday, on Thursday, April 13, 2017.

As per the aforementioned announcement, this one-off public sector holidays is granted to "on the 13th April, from 12:00pm onwards, to all the employees and agents of the ministries or their dependent services, as well as the institutes and integrated indirect State administration bodies".

The aforementioned full day public holiday on Thursday, April 13, 2017, is given due "due to the celebrations held on Holy Thursday, the last day of Lent in the calendar of the Catholic religion which this year falls on the 13th April".

Contrary to the Easter public sector holidays declared in previous years (15-Apr-2014, 25-Mar-2013, 04-Apr-2012 and 11-Apr-2011), but in line with what happened for the past 2 years (21-Mar-2016 and 31-Mar-2015), in 2017, there will be no public sector holiday Easter Monday in Timor Leste.

According to the Secretariat of State of the Council of Ministers of Timor Leste, this decision is based on law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (12-Aug-2005) and the list of official public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2017, which was announced at the beginning of this year (18-Jan-2017).
