The laws of Guyana establish official holidays for the nation. Once established by the legislature, the Ministry of Home Affairs sets the official register of national holidays and paid holidays.
Guyana uses a five-day work week; the standard week runs from Monday through Friday. Sunday is a traditional day of rest or weekly holiday. Financial institutions work primarily Monday through Friday. Most commercial businesses operate on Saturdays. Sunday is not a paid holiday unless otherwise provided in the official paid holidays.
