The Government of Gibraltar has issued the "Bank And Public Holidays Order 2021" (LN. 2021/431), which specifies the official list of Gibraltar bank holidays and public holidays in Gibraltar for the upcoming calendar year 2022 ("It is hereby declared that holidays set out in the Schedule shall be Bank and Public Holidays in the year 2022").

The "Bank And Public Holidays Order 2021" starts with the preamble, ("In exercise of the powers conferred on it by section 2(3) of the Banking and Financial Dealings Act and by section 58 of the Interpretation and General Clauses Act, and of all other enabling powers, the Government has made the following Order".

The list of 2022 bank holidays and public holidays in Gibraltar contain the expected 4-day Platinum Jubilee public holidays that had been announced late last year (2020-11-23) and confirmed a few months ago (2021-06-03).

Since then, a few Commonwealth states have joined the UK and Gibraltar in declaring a 4-day Platinum Jubilee period of public holiday (2021-08-28, 2021-08-06 and 2021-07-05).

For 2022, a day in lieu public holiday was declared on Monday, May 2, 2022, to align with the corresponding public holiday in the United Kingdom (2020-10-30, 2018-10-29, 2017-11-21, 2016-11-15, 2015-11-02, 2012-03-03, 2014-11-01, 2013-11-02 and 2012-10-28).
