The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has officially released the latest gazette on the public holidays in 2019.
According to the list, there will be a total of five long weekends next year. Good Friday and National Day fall on Friday while Vesak Day, Hari Raya Haji and Deepavali fall on Sunday (following Monday will be a public holiday).
In case you are wondering why it isn’t five long weekends, that’s because National Day and Hari Raya Haji fall on the same weekend, making it a super long weekend from 9 – 12 August 2019.
Making it 6 Long Weekends
Look at the list closer and you will find New Year’s Day and the start of Chinese New Year public holiday fall on a Tuesday. That means you can enjoy a long weekend simply by taking leave on both Mondays.
Except, everyone else will be doing the same thing so better submit that leave form soonest you can.Learn more from Ministry of Manpower
