Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Djibouti are regulated by the Arrêté no 77-609/PR/CAB du 17 décembre 1977 which amended the more fundamental Arrêté no 77-347/INT/AA du 4 octobre 1977 réglementant les jours fériés, chômés et payés en République de Djibouti, which was later amended by the June 1980 Arrêté n°80-0931/PR portant rectificatif de l'arrêté n° 77-347/PR/MI du 4.10.1977.  Weekends are Fridays only.  Aïd el Addha (Feast of Sacrifice) is limited by law to only 2 days, but our records show that it has been observed over 3 days for the last few years.  Djibouti International Codes DJ and DJI (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .dj (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Djibouti information and news: ASI Hot Spots (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Djibouti maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Djibouti), and Wikipedia (includes Djibouti commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Religion of Specific Business Contacts : Some of the business contacts that you may be trying to meet in Djibouti, may belong to a religious group that is not common in Djibouti, and therefore which is not included in the above list of public holidays or bank holidays. To be safe, you should also verify that no major religious holidays coincides with any planned business trip to Djibouti.


Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Djibouti that are based on certain religious calendars may be subject to local variations due to differing interpretations between different religious authorities, or to seemingly arbitrary changes in the date a holiday is celebrated because it conflicts with another holiday that is based on another calendar, or because the day of the holiday is deemed inauspicious (bad luck). To find out more about these uncertainties, see the footnote below, if any, for each specific religion.


Muslim Holidays : Muslim bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Djibouti were evaluated using the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia which is used in Saudi Arabia and in most of the Persian Gulf States. Holidays may occur a day later in countries outside the Gulf region. The sunrises, sunsets, moon phases, moonrises and moonsets used in these calculations are based on the location of Mecca (latitude 21.42°N, longitude, 39.82°E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).

In many parts of the world, holidays are subject to arbitrary, last minute, changes by local authorities. While every effort has been made to present an accurate list of 2014 bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Djibouti, we cannot accept any responsibility for any error or omission in the data presented above. You are therefore advised to verify the above dates with the embassy or consulate of Djibouti, before planning any trip to Djibouti.
