The government of Timor Leste has issued a press communiquι containing its annual list of official non-working public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2016 (Feriadu sira iha tinan 2016).

As usual (27-Feb-2015, 05-Feb-2014, 28-Jan-2013, 28-Dec-2011 and 30-Dec-2010), the aforementioned announcement of the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2016 (Loron feriadu ho data fiksa no variαvel ne'ebι determina tiha ona tuir Lei n.o 10/2005, fulan agostu, ba tinan 2016 mak hanesan tuir mai ne'e), follows the precepts of law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (12-Aug-2005) and in addition specifies the dates for the 2 Muslim public holiday in East Timor for 2016.

The aforementioned list of official public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2016 applies to both the private and public sectors. However, in addition, public sector employees regularly are granted additional one-off, but predictable, public holidays (21-Dec-2015, 19-Aug-2015, 04-Jun-2015, 11-May-2015, 31-Mar-2015, 16-Feb-2015, 13-Aug-2014, 15-Apr-2014, 01-Mar-2014, 25-Nov-2013, 16-Aug-2013, 25-Mar-2013, 11-Feb-2013, 20-Dec-2012, 26-Nov-2012, 29-Oct-2012, 07-Jul-2012, 03-Jul-2012, 15-May-2012, 11-Apr-2012, 04-Apr-2012, 15-Mar-2012, 17-Feb-2012 and 20-Jan-2012).

In particular, we are expecting the government of Timor Leste to once again grant an additional day-off public sector holiday, on February 10, to all employees of ministries, departments and State agencies including all State institutes and bodies on account of the upcoming Ash Wednesday, as it has done almost systematically in recent years (16-Feb-2015, 01-Mar-2014, 11-Feb-2013, 17-Feb-2012, and 07-Mar-2011), as "Ash Wednesday is a solemn day of great importance for the Christian Community: it is the first day of Lent in the Catholic calendar that occurs forty days before Easter.".
