China Public Holiday 2022 Schedule
The State Council released the official China public holiday 2022 schedule through its Circular of the General Office of the State Council on the Arrangement of Public Holidays in 2022 (see here for the official source) on October 25, 2022.
As is traditional, the holiday schedule features two major week-long holidays (often referred to as ‘Golden Week’): Spring Festival (also known as Chinese New Year) and the National Day holiday.
In 2022, Spring Festival falls between January 31 and February 6, and the National Day holiday falls between October 1 and 7. See our article here for a detailed 2022 Spring Festival calendar and planning for the holiday disruption.
Foreign human resource managers should note that Saturdays and Sundays are often marked as additional official workdays in China to compensate for long holiday breaks.
For example, in 2022, Saturday, January 29 and Sunday, January 30, are designated as official workdays to partially offset the seven days off for Spring Festival.
Private companies in China, however, have the right to determine their own schedules – that is, allow for additional days off – so long as the official holiday calendar is maintained.
