Public Holidays in Johor refer to the official days off recognised by the state of Johor, Malaysia. These holidays include national celebrations, such as Independence Day and King’s Birthday, and state-specific observances unique to Johor.
The holidays may vary each year due to the Islamic lunar calendar and are an important aspect of Johor’s cultural and traditional heritage.

What happens if Johor Public Holidays falls on the weekend?
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 known as a ‘substitute public holiday’ or ‘replacement public holiday’. However, the final decision will be made by the state or federal government and it may vary.
