The government of Argentina has gazetted the Decreto 1768/2013 which lists the one-off non-working bridge public holidays ("feriados con fines turísticos") for the calendar years 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The aforementioned "feriados con fines turísticos" were established in the 2010 decree, published in the "Decreto 1585/2010, Establécense días feriados con fines turísticos" (Boletín Oficial, Número 32.020, Año CXVIII), implementing a major public holidays revision (2010-11-03) and instituting the principle of 2 annual bridge public holidays ("en los casos en que los feriados nacionales coincidan con los días martes o jueves, a fijar 2 feriados por año que deberán coincidir con los días lunes o viernes inmediatos respectivos") to be announced at least 50 days before the beginning of the year in question ("debiendo establecer los mismos por períodos trianuales con una antelación de 50 días a la finalización del año calendario").

Some of the elements of the list of one-off non-working bridge public holidays ("feriados con fines turísticos") for the calendar years 2014, 2015 and 2016, in Argentina, had been released already.

This was the case for the 2 bridge public holidays for 2014 which were mentioned but left to be confirmed ("a confirmar"). last month (2013-10-16), when Argentina's Ministry of the Interior released the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Argentina for the calendar year 2014 ("Feriados Nacionales y Puentes Turísticos 2014").

In addition, earlier this year (2013-05-22), Argentina's Minister of Tourism, Enrique Meyer, had jumped the gun and announced that Friday, July 8, 2016, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina.
