Thailand 2020 Bank Holiday Amended Again

Posted: Friday, September 25, 2020

Thailand's Central Bank has announced that it had decided not to declare bank holidays on Thursday and Friday, November 19 and 20, 2020, for banks and financial institutions in Thailand, contrary to the recent declaration of November and December 2020 compensatory Songkran public holidays by the government of Thailand.

Earlier this week (2020-09-22), the Thai cabinet declared Thursday and Friday, November 19 and 20, 2020, as additional public holidays in Thailand, and moved the expected December 7 day in lieu public holiday to December 11, 2020, thus further amending (2020-08-13, 2020-06-30, 2020-06-23, 2020-06-02 and 2020-03-16) the list of 2020 public holidays in Thailand, as announced in the summer of 2019 (2019-07-31).

An earlier declaration by the Thai cabinet of extra public holidays for Asarnha Bucha Day and Buddhist Lent (2020-06-23), on July 7, 2020, was followed by neither the Thailand's Central Bank, nor by banks and financial institutions in Thailand, though the later declaration of Monday, July 27, 2020, as a one-off bridge public holiday in Thailand (2020-06-30) was followed by Thailand's banking and financial sectors (2020-07-02).
