Bolivia's Presidential Chief of Staff, Juan Ramón Quintana, has announced that the declaration of one or more nationwide non-working public holidays in Bolivia, on account of the upcoming visit of Pope Francis, would be taken-up, and voted on, at the next Cabinet meeting on July 1st, 2015.

Pope Francis will be in Bolivia July 8-9-10, 2015.

A couple of months ago (20-Apr-2015), Bolivia's Minister of Labour, José Gonzalo Trigoso, had announced that no decision had yet been made as to the declaration of one or more non-working public holiday in Bolivia, on account of the upcoming visit of Pope Francis ("[Declarar] como feriado no creo, pero es una opinión personal. Supongo que esto se va a definir todavía a otro nivel y en otro momento. El tema no se ha tocado.").

The following month (05-May-2015), Bolivia's President, Evo Morales, confirmed that the Bolivian Government was studying the declaration of one or more nationwide non-working public holidays in Bolivia, on account of the upcoming visit of Pope Francis, and the mass the Pope is scheduled to hold in Santa Cruz,, and that July 9 had already been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Santa Cruz, though not yet nationally ("el feriado por lo menos en Santa Cruz, ya está aprobado. Falta en toda Bolivia").

Recall that, late last year, the Bolivian Government declared a one-off public holiday in Bolivia on account of the passage of the Dakar Rally, only to cancel it a couple of weeks later (13-Dec-2014, 01-Jan-2015, 07-Jan-2015 and 08-Jan-2015).

Note that July 6 and 7 were declared as one-off non-working public holidays in Ecuador, also on account of the upcoming visit of Pope Francis (08-Jun-2015 and 01-Jun-2015) and that Paraguay declared Friday and Saturday, July 10 and 11, 2015, as one-off non-working public holidays in Paraguay on account of the upcoming visit of Pope Francis in Paraguay (09-Jun-2015).
