The government of the Maldives' has announced that President Ibrahim Mohamed Salih had approved the list of 2022 annual Maldives public holidays as well as the the declaration of 4 additional one-off public holidays in the Maldives for the calendar year 2022.

The aforementioned list of official public holidays in the Maldives for the calendar year 2022 confirms the dates of the Maldives public holidays that are based on the Islamic calendar, and adds the Labour Day public holiday announced a decade ago (2011-04-29), as was the case in past years (2021-01-08, 2019-12-12, 2019-01-09, 2018-01-15, 2017-01-09, 2016-01-04, 2015-01-06, ...).

Before 2020, the initial list of Maldives' public holidays was often amended a few times a year by the declaration of one-off public holidays (2019-07-17, 2019-05-02, 2019-04-04, and 2019-01-21, this past year only).

But, beginning for 2020, to avoid the declaration of one-off public holidays at the last minute, President Ibrahim Mohamed Salih announced 6 additional public sector holidays to be observed in the Maldives in 2020, before the beginning of that year (2019-12-12).

A similar extension to the list of 2021 Maldives public holidays was also announced at the end of 2020 (2020-12-27).

The aforementioned 2020 and 2021 declaration of one-off public holidays, before the beginning of the year, did not prevent the subsequent of further one-off public holidays in 2021 (2021-07-13, 2021-05-13, 2021-04-04 and 2021-01-05).
