The Nepalese Government has declared Sunday, October 13, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Nepal to coincide with the second day of the two-day state visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The aforementioned announcement that Sunday, October 13, 2019, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Nepal on account of the state visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping, is in addition to this spring's announcement (2019-03-15) of the gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year B.S. 2076 (April 2019-April 2020).
Last year (2018-05-04), the provincial government of Nepal's Province No. 2 had similarly declared Friday, May 11, 2018, as a non-working public holiday in Nepal's Province No. 2, when Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, was to visit Janakpur and the Janaki Temple, and 2 years before (2016-10-27), the government of Nepal declared Wednesday, November 2, 2016, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Nepal to mark the arrival in Nepal of Indian President Pranab Mukherjee, in Nepal for a three-day state visit.
The days when a Nepalese President left for, and returned from, a foreign visit, were also declared as one-off non-working public holidays in Nepal in the past, though that practice seems to have been curtailed in recent years (2017-04-17, 2017-04-16, 2010-02-11 and 2002-06-22).
