Public holidays in Myanmar are regulated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Myanmar officially observes 21 public holidays per year. Entitlement to paid holidays is largely regulated by terms of an employment contract or bargaining agreement.
Many political holidays and observances were established to honor political freedom in many parts of the country. In addition to public holidays, which are paid at normal wages, every employee is entitled to weekly holidays on Saturday and Sunday.
