Egypt's Minister of Manpower and Immigration, Khaled el-Azhari, has announced that the official non-working public holiday in Egypt for the upcoming Birthday of Prophet Muhammad, would be observed as a "fully paid holiday for employees of the public and private sectors" on Thursday, January 24, 2013.

Note that the next day, Friday, January 25, 2013, is also an annual non-working public holiday in Egypt, originally named "Police Day" (2010-01-06) and later recycled as "January 25 Revolution Day" (2012-01-11).

In addition, as January 25 falls on a day of the Egyptian weekend in 2013, we can expect Egypt's Central Bank to announce that all Egyptian banks will be closed on the next working day, Sunday, January 27, 2013, which would be declared a bank holiday in Egypt.
