Mozambique's Ministry of Labour (Ministério do Trabalho, Emprego e Segurança Social - MITESS) has announced that Tuesday, January 2, 2018, would not be declared as a non-working public holiday in Mozambique.
Often (19-Dec-2016, 30-Dec-2015, 22-Dec-2014, 21-Dec-2013 and 21-Dec-2012), the day before or after Christmas and the New Year is declared as a one-off public sector holiday (tolerância de ponto) in Mozambique.
More generally, the declaration of one-off non-working public holidays is a relatively common feature of Mozambique's official public holidays calendar (14-Jan-2015, 21-Dec-2013, 01-Aug-2013, 21-Dec-2012, 05-Dec-2011, 16-Oct-2011, 29-Dec-2010, 23-Dec-2010,...), in particular as Mozambique's Labour Code gives the Minister of Labour the authority to declare one-off public holidays in Mozambique, and in fact mandates them for Mozambique public holidays falling on a Sunday ("segundo a Lei do Trabalho, sempre que a data coincide com domingo, a suspensão das actividades laborais passa para o dia seguinte").
