Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has released the official list of non-working Singapore public holidays and bank holidays in Singapore for the upcoming calendar year 2022 which, for an eighth consecutive year, does not include any error in the date of the 2022 Deepavali public holiday in Singapore.

Usually, the list of Singapore public holidays is released in early April (2019-04-08, 2018-04-05 and 2017-04-05), but the announcement of the list of 2021 Singapore public holidays was delayed by a couple of month (2020-06-24).

The mention in last year's list of 2021 Singapore public holidays, that the dates for the Hari Raya Puasa and the Hari Raya Haji public holidays were "Subject to change", was not repeated in today's listing of 2022 public holidays.

However, the aforementioned list of 2022 Singapore public holidays does include, for the first time, the mentions that "Tuesday, 3 May 2022, will be a public holiday if your rest day falls on 1 May 2022" and that "Monday, 16 May 2022, will be a public holiday if your rest day falls on 15 May 2022", as well as that "Monday, 26 December 2022, will be a public holiday if your rest day falls on 25 December 2022".

In the past, the determination of the annual date of the Deepavali public holiday in Singapore was often problematic, with the announced date for 2009 (2009-02-10 and 2008-02-25), being revised by a full month shortly before the actual holiday was to occur, and smaller, one-day, errors in the announced date of the 2014 and 2013 Deepavali public holidays in Singapore (2014-04-07, 2013-04-09 and 2012-04-09). But, since 2015 (2015-05-22 and 2015-05-12), no such amendment was made (2019-04-08, 2018-04-05, 2017-04-05 and 2016-04-05).
