Turkmenistan is a country located in Central Asia which celebrates 12 national holidays. Some of these holidays are multi-day events. Turkmenistan also has several commemorative days throughout the year that are not nationally recognised as holidays, but are nevertheless celebrated throughout the country.

The Labour Laws of Turkmenistan provide employees with a paid day off from work for all national holidays. Commemoration days are not included in these paid days off. Employers are required to provide employees with a paid day off in lieu of the holiday if their job position requires them to work on a national holiday.
