For financial institution branches in Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala, Satun, and Songkhla, extra holidays are given for Eidal – Fitr Day (Ramadan Day), Eidal – Adha Day (Raya Hajji Day) announced by the Sheikhul Islam Office, and the Chinese New Year Day if the date does not fall on any of holidays listed above or Saturday and Sunday.
Remarks: 1/ Effective from B.E. 2550 onwards, the Asarnha Bucha Day is prescribed as a holiday, in replacement of the Buddhist Lent Day. 2/ Effective from B.E. 2562 onwards, the Mid-Year Closing Day (1st July) is canceled as a financial institution’s holiday, which was originally scheduled to allow financial institutions to do half-year financial statement. However, financial institutions now have a more efficient financial statement system, which can be operated without affecting the services on all channels of financial institutions. Therefore, it is not necessary to prescribe the Mid-Year Closing Day as a financial institutions’ holiday anymore.
