The Namibian Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) has released its annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Namibia, for the calendar year 2022.

The aforementioned announcement of the 2022 public holidays in Namibia states that "According to the Public Holidays Act, 1990 (Act 26 of 1990) the Monday, following a Sunday which is a public holiday, shall also be a public holiday, unless the Monday is already a public holiday." and includes a list of observance days that are not public holidays (Constitution Day, Day of the African Child, Day of the Namibian Child, and United Nations Day), as usual (2020-09-20, 2019-11-23, 2018-11-11, 2017-10-21, 2016-12-07, 2015-12-05 and 2015-01-22).

The list of 2022 public holidays in Namibia could be amended later in the year, as was the case last year, when Wednesday, November 25, 2020, was declared a one-off public holiday for the regional council and local authority elections in Namibia (2020-11-20, 2020-11-19 and 2020-11-18).
