Egypt's Central Bank has released its annual list of 2021 bank holidays in Egypt, dates when all Egyptian banks will be closed in the calendar year 2021, corresponding generally to the list of official non-working public holidays in Egypt in 2021.

As usual (2020-01-13, 2019-01-16, 2017-09-03, 2017-01-07, 2015-12-31 and 2015-01-01), the aforementioned list of 2021 bank holidays in Egypt and Egyptian public holidays in 2021 does not include the common last-minute declaration of one-off bank holidays to compensate annual Egyptian bank holidays that fall on a weekend (2019-10-30, 2019-06-27, 2019-04-17, 2019-01-21, 2018-12-26, 2018-09-30, 2018-07-16, 2018-06-11, 2018-04-03, 2016-05-01, 2014-04-22, 2013-04-30 and 2012-10-01).

However, recall that last June (2020-06-28), the Government of Egypt announced that it would start to move fixed-date mid-week public holidays to the following Thursday "to give citizens a chance to have a long weekend".
