The Government of Cape Verde, through the Gabinete do Secretário de Estado da Administração Pública, has declared one-off non-working public holidays (tolerância de ponto) on account of the upcoming Carnival and subsequent Ash Wednesday (na quadra carnavalesca e na celebração do dia das Cinzas).

The declaration of Carnival and Ash Wednesday as one-off public sector holidays (tolerância de ponto) is relatively common in Cape Verde (2015-02-16, 2014-04-15, 2011-03-07 and 2010-03-31), though not systematic (2010-03-31 and 2006-04-12).

As usual the Island of São Vicente will observe Carnival and Ash Wednesday differently than the rest of the country. In São Vicente, February 9 will be a full-day public holiday, while February 10 will be a half-day, morning-only, public holiday.
