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 Tuesday, July 2, 2019, in conjunction with the annual, Día del Empleado Bancario bank holiday of Guatemala, as well as of the annual Día del Ejército non-working public holiday in Guatemala.

The aforementioned announcement ("el asueto del 30 de Junio “Día del Ejército” que por ley se corre al próximo lunes y, además, por la celebración del “Día del Empleado Bancario” que corresponde al 1 de julio y se pasa al 2"), as was the case last year (2018-06-27), 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 2019 in Guatemala released earlier this year (2018-12-31).
