2022 Public Holidays Saudi Arabia Service

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

Saudi Arabia has 16 holidays. The holidays are inspired and observed under Islamic laws. The king has the power to extend or revoke a holiday at any given time. The act features a plan that offers all government and military staff one full week off. Such a decree from the kings is similar to the one issued at the end of Ramadan in the past years.

In Saudi Arabia, weekends begin on Friday and end on Saturday, Sunday is a working day. Workers in Saudi Arabia are entitled to a paid day off for all their national holidays. Professions that are unique and require full-time appearances come with an additional benefit for workers who work on holidays. Most retail stores close early to begin the festivities. The holidays differ, and with each, the society embraces different roles such as fasting, praying, and relaxing with family.

The government respects the holidays and can alter the date but cannot eject the major holidays from the calendar. It can change or add additional days for some of the holidays. Some of the holidays can go for 14 days other while others are just a day long. During such long holidays, most businesses close for all this time.

The Muslim festivals are timed to the local sighting of the moon. All the dates for the holidays change with time. The duration of the holidays is calculated by the expected days off required by the private sector.
