The Government of Uzbekistan has announced that, as per the presidential decree of earlier this year, the citizens of Uzbekistan would enjoy 3 consecutive non-working public holidays from Tuesday to Thursday, July 20-22, 2021, inclusively, on account of the upcoming annual public holidays for Kurban-Hayit (the Feast of Sacrifice).
The aforementioned July 20-22 Kurban-Hayit public holidays are in line with last March's decree by the President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, which further extended the list of 2021 public holidays in Uzbekistan (2021-03-12 and 2020-12-03).
The initial decree "О мерах по дальнейшему развитию внутреннего и паломнического туризма в Республике Узбекистан", was followed a couple of months ago by another similar one "О внесении изменений и дополнений в указ президента об установлении дополнительных нерабочих дней в период празднования официальных дат и переносе выходных дней в 2021 году", which moves the July 21 and July 22, 2021, working days to Saturday, July 17, and Saturday, July 24, respectively.
