2021 Public Holidays Peru Service
The above is the list of 2021 public holidays declared in Peru which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Peru holiday calendar for 2021 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
With a total of 13 public holidays, some of the public holidays are unique to the country. Towards the end of each year, the government of Peru announces the public holidays that will be effective in the coming year. The Ministry of Labor regulates the public holidays. The government’s decrees are made through official publications. The employees of the government get an off day on public holidays. The government and the public sector close during this time. Businesses are encouraged by the government to honor the holidays and give their staff off days. Employers are however, given the freedom to either pay or not pay their staff for the holidays. In Peru, the day before the public holiday is also considered part of a holiday. This is a move the government has put in place since 2006. This extension is a government move to boost tourism since most tourists tour the country around this time.
Businesses in Peru shut down, and thus stocking up before the holiday is always advised. The public transport system is a bit slow during public holidays. For this reason, travel costs and travel options are costly. The Peruvian community is outgoing, and their public holidays are also hectic as families move from region to region having a fun time with family.
Peru is a religious country and adheres and respect public holidays. During these celebrations, the society gets involved in parades and parties all day long.
