Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Indonesia are announced in the summer of every year, for the following year, by a Joint Decree of the Minister of Religious Affairs, Minister of Manpower and Transmigration, and the State Minister for Enhancement of Efficiency of State Apparatuses, such as the No. 407/2005, No. KEP.185/MEN/VII/2005; No. SKB/02/M.PAN/7/2005 On Holidays and Collective Leave in 2006, and the National Holidays and Collective Leave in 2008 (No. 55/2007, No. KEP.222/MEN/V/2007 and No. SKB/03/M.PAN/5/2007.  Weekend Public Holidays: Public holidays that occur on a weekend remain on that date (ie. they are not moved to another date, such as the following Monday, for example).  Bridge Holidays: the government will regularly declare bridge holidays that extend from public holidays that fall on a Tuesday or Thursday to the nearest weekend. These bridge holidays are called Shared Holiday by Government Decree for an Extended Weekend, or cuti bersama.  More generally, Cuti Bersama ares officially declared long holidays established to stimulate national tourism and increase efficiency in the operation of government offices.  Chinese New Year: Until 1999, the celebration of Chinese New Year in public spaces was not permitted, and it has only been a national public holiday since 2003, following President, Megawati Sukarnoputri's announcement in February 2002.  Eid al Fitr is an official national public holiday for only the first two days. Banks close for the entire week. Many businesses close for at least the entire week, if not two. The days off can be leading up to, after, or a combination of both, depending on which day of the week Shawwal 1 is. This is the time of year when just about everyone travels back home.  Nyepi (the Balinese equivalent of the word for silence) is a national public holiday, but it is particularly strictly observed in the Island of Bali where the Balinese celebrate Nyepi as a day of absolute silence and meditation, which includes the shut down of the island's airport, for a 24 hour period. Most major hotels permit guests full use of hotel grounds and outlets with a tacit understanding that guests should not venture outside the property's bounds.  Indonesia International Codes ID and IDN (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .id (ICANN national top-level internet domain). Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Indonesia information and news: Bank Indonesia (Indonesia central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Indonesia maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Indonesia), and Wikipedia (includes Indonesia commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Footnotes
*

Religion of Specific Business Contacts : Some of the business contacts that you may be trying to meet in Indonesia, may belong to a religious group that is not common in Indonesia, and therefore which is not included in the above list of public holidays or bank holidays. To be safe, you should also verify that no major religious holidays coincides with any planned business trip to Indonesia.

**

Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Indonesia that are based on certain religious calendars may be subject to local variations due to differing interpretations between different religious authorities, or to seemingly arbitrary changes in the date a holiday is celebrated because it conflicts with another holiday that is based on another calendar, or because the day of the holiday is deemed inauspicious (bad luck). To find out more about these uncertainties, see the footnote below, if any, for each specific religion.

(2)

Muslim Holidays : Muslim bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays, for Indonesia, were calculated using the MABIMS (Menteri Agama Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, dan Singapura) lunar visibility criteria. For Salat (prayer times) calculations, see our Freeware page.

(9)

Lunisolar Holidays : The calculation of moon phases, moonrises, moonsets, sunrises, and sunsets used to predict lunar bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Indonesia are based on the geographical location of Jakarta (latitude 6,1S, longitude 106,8E, GMT+7,0 hours, no summer time rules). Note that many countries in South-East Asia are progressively changing the recurrence rule of some of their lunar/solar holidays to rules based on fixed dates of the Western (Gregorian) calendar. Therefore, while the dates predicted above for 2018 and beyond are currently technically correct, the rules of these holidays may change in the next few years.


Disclaimer
In many parts of the world, holidays are subject to arbitrary, last minute, changes by local authorities. While every effort has been made to present an accurate list of 2018 bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Indonesia, we cannot accept any responsibility for any error or omission in the data presented above. You are therefore advised to verify the above dates with the embassy or consulate of Indonesia, before planning any trip to Indonesia.
