Sarawak Public Holidays 2018

This page contains a calendar of all 2018 Sarawak public holidays. Please scroll down to view.

Knowing when public holidays will be is important if you live in Sarawak or plan to visit Sarawak in 2018. The list below can be used to guide you regarding holidays. However, the government does not release official dates until about six months in advance so this list should be considered unofficial.

When the actual dates are released for 2018, we will update this list. Our email alert system will notify you when the official public holidays have been added, so be sure to sign up today.
