The Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Policy of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) has announced that Sunday, March 1st, and Monday, March 2, 2020, would be public holidays in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as per the "Law on Proclamation of 1 March as the Independence Day".

As per the aforementioned announcement, Monday, March 2, 2020, will be a day in lieu non-working public holiday in Bosnia and Herzegovina due to the annual, March 1st, Independence Day public holiday falling on a Sunday, this year ("Since this year the 1 March falls on Sunday, and given the importance of this public holiday, the FBiH Government has issued a Decision declaring the next business day non-working in the Federation of BiH").

Day in lieu public holidays are part of the 2009 "draft law on public holidays" (2009-07-18), but normally apply to a few of the annual non-working public holidays in Bosnia and Herzegovina (2012-11-23), but this one, as on the previous occasion (2015-02-26), does modify the list of official public holidays in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina for the current calendar year (2020-01-13).
