Quite a few people go on the web to inquire whether or not Oct. 31, Thursday, is a non-working holiday. Well, you are on the right page. This article tells you the answer.

As of this writing, the government has not yet confirmed if that day is a non-working holiday.

Judging from what happened last year, however, the President made a decision to suspend office works in the afternoon of the same day to give time to people who are going to travel to provinces for the two-day holiday in November. What this means is that, there is a high chance that the case might be the same this year. Let’s just hope for that so people could have more time to prepare for their travel.
