Banks closed Wednesday for Day of the Dead


On the occasion of the Day of the Dead, banks are suspending operations Wednesday November 2, the Association of Banks of Mexico reported.

Through a statement, the association said that only banks that are in commercial warehouses and supermarkets will be open to the public that day, during normal hours.

That provision corresponds to the agreement with the Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV, for its acronym in Spanish), which establishes November 2 as a non-working day in the financial sector.

It recalled that customers have at their disposal, 365 days a year, banking services by telephone and internet, as well as a network of over 47 thousand ATMs.

It is noteworthy that the Law for Transparency and Regulation of Financial Services provides that in case the deadline for payment corresponds to a non-business day, it may be made the next business day.
