The Sudeban (Superintendencia de Instituciones del Sector Bancario - Venezuelan regulatory body for the banking sector), has announced that Friday, December 31, 2021, would be a bank holiday in Venezuela, on account of the annual New Year's Eve bank holiday and public holiday of Venezuela.

The aforementioned announcement that Friday, December 31, 2021, would be a bank holiday in Venezuela, is in line with the official list of the dates for the 2021 public holidays and banking holidays in Venezuela as announced last autumn by the Sudeban (2020-10-15).

The President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, has signed the decree enforcing last year's amendments to the Venezuelan legislation governing non-working public holidays, which take effect today, though they were signed by President Hugo Chávez on May 1st, 2012 (2012-04-29, 2012-03-13 and 2012-02-06).

December 31 was made an annual public holiday of Venezuela as per the Ley Orgánica del Trabajo, los Trabajadores y las Trabajadoras (2013-05-01, 2012-03-13 and 2012-02-06) which replaced the then current legislation related to non-working public holidays in Venezuela with the declaration of 4 additional annual public holidays: Carnival Monday, Carnival Tuesday, December 24, and December 31.
