Easter Sunday is not a public and bank holiday, Government reiterates

Posted: Tuesday, November 7, 2023. 8:26 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: In a press release, the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries notifies for general information that following the Holiday Act Chapter 289 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2011, Easter Sunday is NOT observed as a Public and Bank Holiday.

Per the Act Sunday, as well as Saturday, is recognized as a dies non (day of no work) and so no holidays are observed on it.

The Easter weekend starts on Good Friday (March 29), continues on Holy Saturday (March 30), and ends on Easter Monday (April 1). Work on Easter Sunday would be paid according to the overtime rates established under the Labour and Holidays Act respectively.

The previous gazetted version of the Public and Bank Holidays List for 2024 issued on October 14 listed Easter Sunday in error. This has been rectified by the updated list published on November 4.
