Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Mayotte are regulated by the Articles L222-1 et suivants du code du travail de Mayotte and the Accord interprofessionnel du 21 août 1998 relatif aux jours fériés.  Weekend Public Holidays: Public holidays that occur on a weekend remain on that date (ie. they are not moved to another date, such as the following Monday, for example).  Paid and unpaid public holidays: of the list of all official public holidays in Mayotte, only 4 are paid public holidays (obligatoirement chômés payés): January 1st, Easter Monday, May 1st, and the Muslim festival of Ide el Kabîr (Feast of Sacrifice). All the other public holidays, though official, are unpaid (non obligatoirement chômés payés).  Mayotte International Codes YT and MYT (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .yt (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Mayotte information and news: Bank of France (Mayotte central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Mayotte maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Mayotte), and Wikipedia (includes Mayotte commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Observance : Any entry in the Observance column indicates that, in Mayotte, the holiday may be regional or non-official or limited to certain religious and/or linguistic groups, or begin at a time other than midnight. Note that religious holidays are included only if they are national public holidays, or if the national labour code has specific holiday allowances for employees of specific religions.


Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Mayotte that are based on certain religious calendars may be subject to local variations due to differing interpretations between different religious authorities, or to seemingly arbitrary changes in the date a holiday is celebrated because it conflicts with another holiday that is based on another calendar, or because the day of the holiday is deemed inauspicious (bad luck). To find out more about these uncertainties, see the footnote below, if any, for each specific religion.


Muslim Holidays : Muslim bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Mayotte were evaluated using the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia which is used in Saudi Arabia and in most of the Persian Gulf States. Holidays may occur a day later in countries outside the Gulf region. The sunrises, sunsets, moon phases, moonrises and moonsets used in these calculations are based on the location of Mecca (latitude 21.42°N, longitude, 39.82°E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).

In many parts of the world, holidays are subject to arbitrary, last minute, changes by local authorities. While every effort has been made to present an accurate list of 2022 bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Mayotte, we cannot accept any responsibility for any error or omission in the data presented above. You are therefore advised to verify the above dates with the embassy or consulate of Mayotte, before planning any trip to Mayotte.
