Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Mongolia are regulated by Articles 32-33-34 of the Labour Code of Mongolia, which came into force on July 1st, 1999. It was later amended in 2007 and 2012 and 2014.  Week-end Public Holidays: The Labour Code of Mongolia makes no special provisions for the occurrence of public holidays on a week-end, and the Mongol Bank (Mongolia's Central Bank) lists all public holidays as remaining on their set days. Our local sources also indicate that when one of the major 3-day holidays (Lunar New Year and Naadam) falls on a weekend, the government may, at its discretion, declare an additional day off for everyone.  Tsargaan Sar: Ever since Mongolia became independent in the early 1990s, there has been an ongoing debate regarding the date when the Tsargaan Sar public holiday should be observed. In 2002, the Government of Mongolia co-organized a project with the Gandan Tegchenling Monastery to settle down the issue of date confusions. The project’s outcome, in which many scientists, astronomers, religious figures, lamas and astrologists contributed, was a calendar made based on Togs Buyant astrology that defined lunar days from the year 1027 until 2106.  Mongolia International Codes MN and MNG (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .mn (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Mongolia information and news: Bank of Mongolia (Mongolia central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Mongolia maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Mongolia), and Wikipedia (includes Mongolia commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Footnotes
*

Observance : Any entry in the Observance column indicates that, in Mongolia, the holiday may be regional or non-official or limited to certain religious and/or linguistic groups, or begin at a time other than midnight. Note that religious holidays are included only if they are national public holidays, or if the national labour code has specific holiday allowances for employees of specific religions.

**

Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Mongolia 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.

Mongolian Calendar Public Holidays : The rules used to predict public holidays based on the Mongolian lunar calendar in Mongolia are based on the Tögs Buyant (Very Virtuous) calendar as revised in 2002 by a joint endevour between the Government of Mongolia and the Gandan Tegchenling Monastery. We are grateful to Olli Salmi for his assistance in implementing the Tögs Buyant Mongolian lunar calendar in Q++ Studio.
