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 Friday, September 14, 2018, in conjunction with the annual, Aniversario de la Independencia Patria non-working public holiday of Guatemala.

The aforementioned announcement ("la Junta Monetaria (JM) autorizó que los bancos, sucursales y agencias bancarias, sociedades financieras, compañías de seguros, compañías almacenadoras y casas de cambio, puedan cerrar el viernes 14 de septiembre, asueto que corresponde al Aniversario de la Independencia Patria") is in line with the list of annual bank holidays in Guatemala and afferent rules thereto, as announced a decade 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 2018 in Guatemala released earlier this year (2018-01-13).
