Indonesia’s 2022 Public Holidays

Posted by Written by Ayman Falak Medina Reading Time: < 1 minute

There are various public holidays throughout the year in Indonesia. In addition to official public holidays, the government also provides joint leaves (collective leave days). The concept of joint leaves was introduced to stimulate the local tourism industry and is counted as a public servants’ overall leave.

However, due to the pandemic, the government has not issued a decree on joint leaves, but this could change depending on the pandemic situation.
