The government of Timor Leste has issued a statement declaring Wednesday, November 3, 2021, as a one-off public holiday in Timor Leste ("É concedida tolerância de ponto no dia 3 de novembro de 2021, durante todo o dia").
As per the aforementioned statement, "Given that, this year, November 2nd, date which marks the All Soul’s Day, falls on Tuesday and that a large number of people will travel throughout country, in order to pay tribute to the memory for their deceased, and following the the article 7 (6) (d) of Law no. 10/2005, of August 10th, as amended by Law no. 3/2016, of May 25th, Government decides that a Day-off is granted on November 3rd, 2021, throughout the day", in a manner similar to what happened last year when the government of Timor Leste declared Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as a one-off public holiday (2020-10-29), and 2 years ago when it declared Thursday, October 31, 2019, as a one-off public holiday in Timor Leste (2019-10-29).
According to the Secretariat of State of the Council of Ministers of Timor Leste, public holidays in Timor Leste are based on law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (2005-08-12), as amended by Law No. 3/2016, of May 25, and the list of official public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2021, which was announced at the end of last year (2021-01-15).
