The supervisory body in charge of the banking sector in Guatemala (the Superintendencia de Bancos de Guatemala) has announced that a day in lieu bank holiday would be observed in Guatemala on Monday, May 2, 2016, in conjunction with the annual, Día del Trabajo, non-working public holiday in Guatemala.
The aforementioned announcement ("los bancos, sucursales y agencias bancarias, sociedades financieras y compañías de seguros, así como compañías almacenadoras y casas de cambio; puedan cerrar el próximo lunes 2 de mayo") is in line with the list of annual bank holidays in Guatemala and afferent rules thereto, as announced 7 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 2016 in Guatemala released earlier this year (2016-01-15).
