Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Kyrgyztan are regulated by the Article 155 of the 2004 Labour Code of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan which replaced the 1997 consolidated Labour Code. Section 166 of the 1997 Labour code was amended in 2002 by the Act No. 2 of 5 January 2002 to amend and supplement the Labour Code (Text No. 7) and the Act No. 3 of 8 January 2002 to supplement the Labour Code (Text No. 8) which are both still in effect.  Weekend Public Holidays are regulated by paragraph 2 of article 115 of the 2004 Labour Code.  Bridge Public Holidays: paragraph 3 of article 115 of the 2004 Labour Code specifies that The government of the Kyrgyz Republic may transfer weekends [to] other days for [the] rational use of weekends and non-working holidays.  November 7th is the public holiday that marks the day of the Great October Revolution back in 1917 when the tsarist regime in Russian Empire was replaced by the Bolsheviks.  Homeland Defenders' Day (February 23) was reinstated as a replacement for the soviet times' Army Day in 2003, but it was removed from the list of official public holidays in 2004, before being reinstated, without much fanfare, in 2008.  Kyrgyzstan International Codes KG and KGZ (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .kg (ICANN national top-level internet domain).

Footnotes

Religion of Specific Business Contacts : Some of the business contacts that you may be trying to meet in Kyrgyzstan, may belong to a religious group that is not common in Kyrgyzstan, and therefore which is not included in the above list of public holidays or bank holidays. To be safe, you should also verify that no major religious holidays coincides with any planned business trip to Kyrgyzstan.

**

Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Kyrgyzstan 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 Kyrgyzstan 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 21.42N, longitude, 39.82E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).
