2021 USA federal and national holidays

The United States has 10 federal national holidays per year. These are nonworking days when no parcel collections or deliveries take place. So whether you're shipping from the UK to the USA, or requesting a collection from the USA, you need to account for the public holidays listed below.

When a national or Federal holiday falls on a weekend, it's normally observed on the prior or next working day. Federal holidays are often referred to as public holidays or bank holidays.

It's worth noting that private employers do not have to allow employees time off for federal holidays, and some do not do so. All government departments do observe all federal holidays. However, all major carriers are closed on federal holidays, and therefore no package collections or deliveries are made.

In addition to national holidays, there are a number of state holidays which may also affect collection and delivery.

In addition to the above 10 federal holidays Washington DC and border counties of Maryland and Virginia also celebrate Inauguration Day once every four years on January 20, following each presidential election.

FAQ's

When you quote a USA transit time do you account for public holidays?

Yes, whenever you get a quote on our website, we will always quote a specific day of collection and delivery and this transit time accounts for any state or national holiday days, so you can rely on our USA transit times to be accurate.

Is there any way you can collect or deliver on federal holidays?

Unfortunately not, as all the couriers are closed, and simply do not operate on state or national holidays.

Can I drop off my parcel on a public holiday?

Unfortunately not, the local depots are all closed on holidays, therefore you will need to wait until the following working day before dropping off your package.

Do customs work on US federal holidays?

No customs clearance takes place on federal holidays, customs clearance will take place on the next working day.
