The Cabinet of Ministers of Kyrgyzstan has approved an extension to the previously-announced list of 2022 public holidays in Kyrgyzstan, with the declaration of 4 bridge public holidays in January 2022 to create a period of continuous public holidays in Kyrgyzstan from January 1 to January 9, 2022.

Last month, the Ministry of Labor and Social Development of Kyrgyzstan had announced a list of 2022 public holidays with only the mention that "Saturday, January 1, is transferred to a working day - Monday, January 3" (2021-11-22).

Today's declaration of additional public holidays on January 4-5-6, 2022, is compensated by the declaration of 3 Saturdays, January 15, February 26, and March 26, 2022, as regular working days in Kyrgyzstan, as was done in past years (2020-12-04, 2019-12-16, 2019-10-15, 2018-12-21, 2018-12-06, 2017-12-04, 2017-12-01, 2016-12-14 and 2016-11-26).

At the same cabinet meeting, the Kyrgyz Ministry of Labor, Social Security and Migration also proposed to declare the period from May 1 to May 9, 2022, as non-working public holidays, as May 1, 5 and 9 are public holidays, and Orozo Ait will occur in early May 2022. As per the head of the Cabinet of Ministers, Akylbek Japarov, the decision to extend the May 2022 Kyrgyz public holidays will occur during the first trimester of 2022.

The Cabinet of Ministers of Kyrgyzstan also discussed amendments to the status of the following annual public holidays; Defender of the Fatherland Day on February 23 (День защитника отечества), Day of the April Revolution on April 7 (День апрельской революции), and Days of History and Memory of Ancestors on November 7 and 8 (Дни истории и памяти предков).
