Background Information

Governing Law: Algerian public holidays are specified by the law n°63/278 of July 26, 1963, as amended and expanded by ordinances n°66/153 and n°68/149 (Journal officiel, 2005-04-27, n° 30, p. 5).  Weekends weekends in Algeria changed from Thursdays/Fridays to Fridays/Saturdays in August 2009.  Eid al Adha is also called Tfaska Tamoqqart in the Berber language of native North African Berbers.  Berber Calendar and Holidays: The Berber people, known as Imazigen, are the native inhabitants of North Africa. The 4 main Berber holidays are Yennayer (Berber New Year, on January 12-13), Tafsut Imazighen (April 20), Anebdu n Tbexisisin (July 31), and Anebdu n Tyerza (October 31). These occur on fixed Gregorian dates, as the Berber Calendar is a variant of the Julian calendar and hence has a steady 950 years and 12 days offset with respect to western dates. The above-mentioned holidays are not public holidays in Algeria.  Algeria International Codes DZ and DZA (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .dz (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Algeria information and news: Bank of Algeria (Algeria central bank), ASI Hot Spots (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Algeria maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Algeria), and Wikipedia (includes Algeria commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).

To be safe, you should also verify that no major religious holidays coincides with any planned business trip to Algeria.

Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Algeria that are based on certain religious calendars may be subject to local variations due to differing interpretations between different religious authorities, or to seemingly arbitrary changes in the date a holiday is celebrated because it conflicts with another holiday that is based on another calendar, or because the day of the holiday is deemed inauspicious (bad luck). To find out more about these uncertainties, see the footnote below, if any, for each specific religion.

Muslim Holidays : Muslim bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Algeria were evaluated using the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia which is used in Saudi Arabia and in most of the Persian Gulf States. Holidays may occur a day later in countries outside the Gulf region. The sunrises, sunsets, moon phases, moonrises and moonsets used in these calculations are based on the location of Mecca (latitude 21.42°N, longitude, 39.82°E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).
