Azerbaijan's Prime Minister, Ali Asadov, has signed a decree On the transfer of working days and days off (О переносе рабочих и выходных дней) declaring Monday, July 19, 2021, as non-working public holiday in Azerbaijan to link this year's annual Gurban Bayram (Feast of Sacrifice, or Eid al-Adha) public holidays of Azerbaijan, on July 20-21, 2021, with the preceding weekend.
The aforementioned declaration of Monday, July 19, 2021, as an additional non-working public holiday, is in addition to the list of 2021 public holidays in Azerbaijan which was published late last year (2020-12-18).
As compensation for the aforementioned declaration of Monday, July 19, 2021, as a public holiday, the government of Azerbaijan has declared that Saturday, July 17, 2021, would be a regular working day, as was often done in past years (2020-03-12 and 2019-12-02).
This means that the upcoming period of Azerbaijan public holidays for Qurban Bayram will run from Sunday to Wednesday, July 18-21, 2021.
