What are public holidays and interbank closures?

These are exceptional days which have a direct impact on your banking transactions and extend the execution delays of your transfers.

What are the days of interbank closures in 2024?

From one year to the next, the public holidays impacted by interbank closures vary. Here are the interbank closing days in 2024:

  • Monday January 1st (New Year's Day)

  • Friday March 29 (Ascension)

  • Monday April 1st (Easter Monday)

  • Wednesday May 1st (Labor Day)

  • Wednesday December 25 (Christmas)

  • Thursday December 26 (day after Christmas)

🌟In case of emergency, you will still be able to send and receive instant transfers on these days!

Holidays not impacted by interbank closures

Your transfers will be executed normally:

  • Wednesday May 8 (Victory Day)

  • Thursday May 9 (Ascension)

  • Monday May 20 (Pentecost Monday)

  • Tuesday August 15 (Assumption)

  • Friday November 1st (All Saints’ Day)

How to anticipate this exceptional situation?

Standard transfers created on these days will be scheduled and executed the following business day. Note that instant transfers are available 7 days a week and allow you to pay your beneficiary within 10 seconds!

💡Make your standard transfers as early as possible in the preceding week before 10:30 a.m. so that they are executed the same day.

What if I’m sending overseas? If you are sending via the SWIFT platform, your ability to effect an international transfer may be subject to local banking holidays in the country you are sending to. Please see this article for more information.
