The President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, has signed the decree "On the establishment of additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and the transfer of days off in 2021" ("Об установлении дополнительных нерабочих дней в период празднования официальных дат и переносе выходных дней в 2021 году") which confirms the list of 2021 public holidays in Uzbekistan, including day in lieu public holidays, bridge public holidays, and working weekend days.

Today's finalized list of 2021 public holidays in Uzbekistan does not deviate from last October's draft resolution "On the establishment of additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and the transfer of days off in 2021" (Об установлении дополнительных нерабочих дней в период празднования официальных дат и переносе выходных дней в 2021 году), listing official public holidays in Uzbekistan for the upcoming calendar year 2021, which had been published for public discussion (2020-10-19 and 2020-10-13), until October 28, 2020.

Today's decree declares 3 one-off non-working public holidays in 2021 in Uzbekistan, in September, and may yet be amended on the occasion of Muslim public holidays, as was the case in the past (2019-08-18 and 2019-05-29), as well as specifying that some Saturdays are to be non-working days for all workers ("суббота 2 января, суббота 20 марта, понедельник 22 марта и суббота 4 сентября 2021 года являются нерабочими днями для всех работников, независимо от вида рабочей недели").

For the past 3 years (2019-11-15, 2018-11-14 and 2017-12-28), the annual announcements of public holidays, as well as bridge public holidays in Uzbekistan, have been made before the beginning of the upcoming calendar years, as opposed to preceding years, when the announcements of one-off public holidays in Uzbekistan was made on a case-by-case basis (2017-08-24, 2017-06-24, 2017-05-02, 2017-03-16, 2016-12-29, 2016-08-26, 2016-02-12, ...).
