Johor Public Holidays

Public holiday in Johor is generally the same as other states in Malaysia. However, it has three additional Johor holidays every year, which are Sultan of Johor’s birthday, Awal Ramadan (the first day of fasting month in the Islamic calendar) and Hari Hol Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.

The government declared that March 23rd would be the annual public holiday, replacing the previous date November 22nd which had initially been celebrated as Sultan of Johor’s birthday. This change was made to commemorate the coronation of Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, the fifth Sultan in the modern history of Johor. Hari Hol Almarhum Sultan Iskandar is the passing date of the previous sultan that has been officially declared a public holiday.
