The Indonesian Central Government has announced the dates for the observance of national holidays in 2022. There will be 16 national holidays celebrated in 2022, while “shared holidays” established initially to create long weekends and stimulate domestic tourism are, at least temporarily, being held in abeyance while accessing the developing COVID-19 situation.

The dates are contained with a Joint Ministerial Decisions from the Minister of Manpower and Minister of State Apparatus Utilization and Bureaucratic Reform Number 963 of 2021, Number 3 – 2021, Number 4 – 2021 regarding National Holidays and Shared Holidays.
