What happens if Johor Public Holidays falls on the Saturday or Sunday?

If a public holiday in Johor falls on a weekend (Friday or Saturday), it is usually replaced and observed on the next working day (Sunday).

This is a ‘Substitute Public Holiday’ or ‘Replacement Public Holiday‘. However, the state or federal government will make the final decision, which may vary.
