The Government of Uzbekistan has announced that, as per the presidential decree "On the establishment of additional days off during the celebration of official dates and the postponement of days off in 2019", the people of Uzbekistan would enjoy consecutive non-working public holidays from Saturday, August 31, to Tuesday, September 3, 2019, inclusively.

The aforementioned announcement, is in line with the decree "On the establishment of additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and shifting of day-offs of 2019" which listed all official public holidays in Uzbekistan for the upcoming calendar year 2019, and was released late last year by the President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyayev (2018-11-14).

In the past, when the government of Uzbekistan declared one-off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan (2017-05-02, 2017-03-16, 2016-08-26, 2016-02-12, 2015-11-21, 2015-08-27, 2012-03-20, 2011-12-27, 2011-08-25, 2011-03-01, 2009-11-25, 2008-12-25, 2007-12-25, 2006-05-01, 2005-12-28 and 2005-12-05), these non-working public holidays were compensated by declaring a nearby Saturday as a regular working day in Uzbekistan.

This is the case also for the upcoming August 31, to September 3, 2019, public holidays, where the September 3 additional public holiday will be compensated on Saturday, September 7, 20189, but, since 2018, these are now announced in advance near the beginning of the year (2018-11-14 and 2017-12-28).
