Honduras October Bank Holidays

Honduras' Bank Association (Asociación Hondureña de Instituciones Bancarias) has announced that banks in Honduras would follow the recently-gazetted new combined October non-working Fiestas Patrias public holidays, and would be closed from Wednesday noon until the weekend.

Earlier this month (02-Oct-2014), the Government of Honduras gazetted a law introduced and passed with immediate effect, at the beginning of last month (10-Sep-2014 and 05-Sep-2014), to combine the 3 annual October non-working public holidays, on the 3rd, the 12th and the 21st, into a contiguous period of public holidays at the end of October.

For banks and the private sector, the Wednesday public holiday, this year and in future years, will only start at noon, to compensate the fact that the Honduras private sector usually works a half day on Saturdays, and that in the case of these new extended public holidays of Honduras, the Saturday will also be a full day off ("la empresa privada laborará el miércoles hasta el mediodía, porque como es conocido ellos trabajan el sábado y de esa forma no trabajarán esa mañana").

Over the years, the government of Honduras has frequently tinkered with the 3 annual non-working public holidays of Honduras which are set in October (03-Oct-2013, 24-Sep-2013, 06-Oct-2012, 01-Oct-2012, 30-Sep-2011, 09-Apr-2003, 25-Oct-2008, 03-Oct-2007, 02-Oct-2006, and 30-Sep-2005).
