Singapore Public Holidays (Updated 2021)

January 25, 2021

Singapore Public Holidays 2020 and 2021

Mark your calendars – the Singapore Ministry of Manpower has just released their official list of public holidays in 2021!

While 2020 hasn’t turned out how we’ve anticipated, it’s not too early to start planning for 2021.

Even if travel restrictions haven’t fully lifted then, you’ll still have annual leave to clear!

So plot your potential leave dates around these public holidays, and you’ll have a few long, restful breaks to look forward to 🙂

ResumeWriter Tip: Quick quiz: how many public holidays are there in Singapore? If you’re covered under Singapore’s Employment Act, you’re entitled to 11 paid public holidays each a year. Know your rights as an employee – if you’re asked to work on a public holiday, you are entitled to an extra day’s salary OR off in lieu.
