The Information Department of Brunei Darussalam's Prime Minister's Office has released a list of official bank holidays and public holidays in Brunei Darussalam during the calendar year 2020 in the Surat Keliling Jabatan Perdana Menteri Bil 6/2019 Negara Brunei Darussalam Hari-Hari Kelepasan Awam Tahun 2020.
The aforementioned list of official bank holidays and public holidays in Brunei Darussalam during the calendar year 2020, signed by the Permanent Secretary to the Prime Minister's Office, Mohd Rizza Bin Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Yunos, leaves the dates of the various Muslim public holidays (Prophet Muhammad's Birthday, 1st Day of Ramadhan, Nuzul Al-Quraan, Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Hari Raya Aidil Adha, and 1st Day of Muharram) as "Subject to changes", as usual (2018-08-04, 2017-08-17, 2016-08-24, 2015-08-25, 2014-10-04, 2013-10-05, 2012-09-25 And 2011-08-29).
Contrary to what happened for the 2013-2014-2015 Brunei public holidays (2015-07-01, 2014-06-28 and 2013-07-08), there is no need for the declaration of another one-off public holiday in August 2020, for the observance of the 74th birthday of the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam ("Hari Keputeraan Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan dan Yang Di-Pertuan Negara Brunei Darussalam Ke-74"), as his birthday will this year not fall during the month of Ramadan.
