Public Holidays 2018

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

Many of Malaysia’s public holidays are celebrated across the country, however each state and territory also has its own state-specific holidays.

Also, state and federal governments can announce additional dates at short notice if they choose – and have done so in the past for events such as the installation of a new king or the country winning gold at a sporting event.

The Malaysian Cabinet office normally releases an official list of public holidays for the next year about 6-months in advance. The list of public holidays below is therefore not yet official. Instead, these are the likely dates of public holidays based upon our best calculations.

We will update the 2018 list once the official dates are announced. In the meantime, they are subject to change.
