On November 30, China’s General Office of the State Council released the “Notification of Holiday Arrangements in 2018, which lays out the official national holiday schedule for 2018.


As always, China’s holiday schedule features two major week-long holidays: the Spring Festival (also known as Chinese New Year) and National Day. In 2018, the Spring Festival falls between February 15 and 21, and the National Day holiday between October 1 and 7.


Employers should take note that China’s holiday schedule often includes additional official work days that fall on Saturdays and Sundays to compensate for long holidays. For example, Sunday, February 11 and Saturday, February 24 are official work days designed to partially offset the seven days off in between for the Spring Festival.


It is important to note that these dates are the official holidays, but private companies also have the right to determine their own schedules with additional days off as long as the official holidays are maintained.

China’s official holiday schedule for 2018 is as follows:

New Year
December 30 – January 1 (3 days in total including the weekend)


Spring Festival
February 15 – 21 (7 days in total)
February 11 (Sunday) and February 24 (Saturday) are official working days


Tomb Sweeping Day
April 5 – 7 (3 days in total including the Saturday)
April 8 (Sunday) is an official working day


Labor Day
April 29 – May 1 (3 days in total including the Sunday)

Dragon Boat Festival
