Holiday closings & other useful information

With Christmas Day falling on a Tuesday this year, routines will not be put out of kilter significantly over the holidays.  Apart from most supermarkets and convenience stores, shops will be closed on December 25, as will all banks, government offices, post offices and diplomatic missions (including the U.S. and Canadian consulates). Hospitals will maintain skeleton staffs and will only attend to emergencies.  Both Red Cross and fire services will be operational.

Most organizations – including banks and consulates – will be open for business on December 24, as well as on December 26 and for the rest of the week. Government offices are allowed to keep their own schedules and one should not take it for granted that they will be open. For example, in contrast to previous years, all offices of the National Immigration Institute (INM) will be closed form December 20 through January 3.
