Indonesia's Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture, Muhadjir Efendy, has re-iterated that there would be no collective leave public holidays for the Christmas 2021 and New Year 2022.

The list of 2021 public holidays and collective leave days in Indonesia, for both the private and public sectors, was announced in the late summer of 2020 (2020-09-11), but was then reduced by 5 days, last February (2021-02-22, 2021-02-18 and 2021-02-15), leaving only 2 collective leave days, the one on Wednesday, May 12 (the day before Eid al-Fitr), and one on Friday, December 24, 2021 (the day before Christmas).

The May 12 public holiday was then canceled almost immediately after the above announcement, leaving only one collective leave day, on December 24.

And, a few months later (2021-06-18 and 2021-06-16), the Coordinating Meeting for the Review of the SKB for National Holidays and Joint Leave in 2021 press conference, canceled the one remaining collective leave day, on Friday, December 24, 2021.

The initially-released list of 2020 public holidays in Indonesia (2019-08-27) was also modified, multiple times (2020-12-01, 2020-11-24, 2020-11-23, 2020-10-19, 2020-05-20, 2020-05-21, 2020-04-09 and 2020-03-09).

For its part, the list of 2022 public holidays in Indonesia, for both the private and public sectors, was announced last September (2021-09-22) but it did not include any collective leave days, with the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture, Muhadjir Effendy, leaving the door open for this to be remedied at a later date ("Hopefully next year the Covid-19 pandemic can be handled properly so that the determination of collective leave can really be realized in 2022").
