Business hours for Semana Santa (Panama City)
Government will close on Thursday at noon. But all "windows" that accept documents from the public will close on Wednesday at noon, so Government will not accept presentation of any paperwork starting Wednesday at noon.
Banks will not work on Thursday nor Friday. But the majority will open on Saturday.
Private offices will be closed on Friday (some may close Thursday at noon). Most will be closed on Saturday, although some may open depending on the service.
As always, all supermarkets will be open.
Businesses (restaurants, bars, department stores, etc.) is random. Some you might find open, others not.
NO ALCOHOL WARNING: Friday 00:00 hrs up until Saturday 00:00hrs, there will be no alcohol sale at any venue.
Hope this helps,
