The Administrator of Australia's Indian Ocean Territories, Barry Haase, has signed the "Community Bulletin A22/2016 and Gazette 09/2016 for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands" which officially changes the date of the upcoming annual bank holiday and public holiday in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands for the observance of Hari Raya Haji (Feast of Sacrifice).

The aforementioned change of date for the 2016 bank holiday and public holiday in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands for the observance of Hari Raya Haji (Feast of Sacrifice), from September 13 to September 12, 2016 ("The Indian Ocean Territories Administration has received a formal request from Mr Andil Minkom advising that the Imam on Cocos (Keeling) Islands has requested observance of Hari Raya Haji to be on Monday, 12 September 2016"), was preceded a couple of months ago (13-Jun-2016), by a similar change to the date of the Hari Raya Puasa (the End of Ramadan) in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, and thus further amends the terms of the "Community Bulletin A39/2015 and Gazette 04-2015 for Cocos (Keeling) Islands", released last summer (03-Aug-2015), which officially gazetted the annual bank holidays and public holidays in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands for the calendar year 2016 and was gazetted in the Proclamation - Special and Bank Holidays 2016 Territory of Cocos (Keeling) Islands (No. 04/2015).

This is the first year in recent memory that such a change is announced (21-Aug-2014, 27-Sep-2013, 10-Sep-2012, 22-Aug-2011, 09-Aug-2010, 10-Aug-2009, and 29-Aug-2008), as the announcement of the official public holidays dates, in the territory of the the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, usually sets definite dates for the following public holidays: Hari Maulad Nabi (Prophet Muhammad's Birthday), Act of Self Determination Day, Hari Raya Puasa, Hari Raya Haji, and Islamic New Year.
