All local holidays are subject to confirmation by the Ugandan Government. If any local holiday is not officially declared or observed by the GOU, it will be a regular workday at the Embassy. If the date for any local holiday differs from that listed above, an announcement will be made.

*This holiday is designated as "Washington's Birthday" in section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law that specifies holidays for Federal employees. Though other institutions such as state and local governments and private businesses may use other names, OPM's policy is to refer to holidays by the names designated in the law.

** Eid-al Fitr is based on the lunar calendar and the precise date will be determined later based on the sighting of the moon.

***Eid al-Adhuha is a festival that celebrates the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca and the precise date of the holiday will be determined later.
