2022 Public Holidays Nepal Service

The above is the list of 2022 public holidays declared in Nepal which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Nepal holiday calendar for 2022 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

Nepal has a total of 42 holidays. These holidays differ from other countries because they are divided into different categories depending on who observes them. These include those observed by a specific gender, Christians, Sikhs, Civil employees, and the Kathmandu valley. Or instance, women observe the Hartalika, whereas Christians observe the Christian day. The Sikhs observe the GuruNanak Jayanti, and the Civil Employees observe Nijamati Sewa Diwas.

The Labor Relations committee regulates the holidays in Nepal. In the country, Saturdays are considered a holiday. The employees working in the country get 13 paid public holidays each year. There are no special wages for holidays; workers get the same amount of wages they receive during their regular workdays. The country’s holidays are based on religions and culture. These holidays vary regarding the length of celebrations. For instance, the Vijaya Dashami is observed for six days, and celebrations include festivals and dances. Other holidays are celebrated in the Kathmandu valley but not included in the public holiday list. A few others do not get a lot of attention except for families taking time to be together.

Other reasons aside from culture and religion that leads to the commemoration of these holidays is a democracy. Democracy day is celebrated to commemorate the day in history when Nepalese were released from bondage and clutches of Rana autocracy.

The Nepalese government has the power to include a holiday on a special occasion. Foreigners and those visiting the country are allowed to participate in events related to their lives or culture but not attend any that are not associated with their faith as different religions have restrictions.
