2020 Public Holidays Hong Kong Service

The above is the list of 2020 public holidays declared in Hong Kong which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Hong Kong holiday calendar for 2020 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

The Hong Kong Region of China is a place with a different holiday observance, compared to Mainland China. With a different status as a former British colony, the city of Hong Kong is awash with a mixture of Eastern and Western customs. The people of this land commemorate some Chinese cultural festivals, in addition to critical western ceremonies.

Hong Kong at the moment has 17 national holidays. Two of these big days are regarded as statutory public holidays. That means that the Hong Kong government requires for employees to give workers a paid day off in all of such holidays. The employers may need for their employees to be at work on the other five holidays, in keeping with their employment contracts.

In this region, public holidays are governed in the General Holidays Ordinance, Chapter 149 that appeared in the Hong Kong National Gazette, 1998. The law allows for the citizens to choose Christmas, as they so wish, as among their 12 paid holidays to make up for a different public holiday. Such an agreement must be complete with an employer during the process of formal acceptance of an employment pact.

Some of the big days reminisced in Hong Kong depend on the lunar cycle. Such holidays appear on varying dates every year. The Hong Kong government needs its employers to acknowledge such days regardless of when they occur. The government releases official holiday dates at the end of every year for the subsequent year.
