Background Information

Governing Law: The list and dates of official public holidays in East Timor are regulated by Section 165 of the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, Law 10/2005, dated August 10, 2005, On National Holidays and Official Commemorative Dates, and Instruction 01/2005, On Holiday's Applicable to Financial Institutions.  Official Name: East Timor is now officially referred to in English as Timor-Leste, it's Portugese equivalent. The government now refers to itself as Timor-Leste, as does the United Nations. Timor-Leste is preferred, although East Timor is still more commonly used in the English language.  The following are considered Official Commemorative Days. They are commemorated but are not public holidays, that is, they are not days off work. • Ash Wednesday (The first day of Lent) • Maundy Thursday (The Thursday before Easter) • Ascension (The 6th Thursday after Easter) • Children's Day (June 1st) • Armed Forces' Day (August 20th) • Women's Day (November 3rd) • Human Rights Day (December 10th).  East Timor International Codes TL and TLS (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .tl (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of East Timor information and news: UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (East Timor maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in East Timor), and Wikipedia (includes East Timor commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Footnotes
*

Observance : Any entry in the Observance column indicates that, in East Timor, 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 East Timor 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 East Timor were evaluated using the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia which is used in Saudi Arabia and in most of the Persian Gulf States. Holidays may occur a day later in countries outside the Gulf region. The sunrises, sunsets, moon phases, moonrises and moonsets used in these calculations are based on the location of Mecca (latitude 21.42°N, longitude, 39.82°E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).


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 2021 bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for East Timor, 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 East Timor, before planning any trip to East Timor.
