Mozambique's government has released the list of 2020 public holidays in Mozambique.

In addition to the aforementioned list of 2020 public holidays in Mozambique, the declaration of one-off non-working public holidays is a relatively common feature of Mozambique's official public holidays calendar (2019-10-01, 2019-09-03, 2019-08-09, 2019-08-07, 2019-04-18, 2018-10-09, 2018-06-14, 2015-01-14, 2013-12-21, 2013-08-01, 2012-12-21, 2011-12-05, 2011-10-16, 2010-12-29, 2010-12-23,...).

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").
