The supervisory body in charge of the banking sector in Guatemala (the Superintendencia de Bancos de Guatemala) has announced that a one-off bank holiday would be observed in Guatemala on Thursday, December 31, 2015.
The aforementioned announcement ("si bien la banca tiene autorización para cerrar el 31 de diciembre al mediodía, debido al cierre bancario de operaciones, no se abre al público durante todo el día") is in addition to the revised list of annual bank holidays in Guatemala and afferent rules thereto, as announced 6 years ago (2009-12-17) in the "Reglamento de Asuetos de las Instituciones Bancarias que operan en la República (Resolución JM-129-2009)", which lists afternoon banks-only public holidays as well as some Monday banks-only public holidays in Guatemala when an annual non-working public holiday falls on the weekend, and amended itself a year later (2010-12-20), as well as with the list of official bank holidays for the calendar year 2015 in Guatemala released late last year (2014-12-22).
