Workers are expected to enjoy 22 days off as national holidays next year, while foreign staff can have 24 days off.

The Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs has proposed 22 days off for various holidays in 2022. The Lunar New Year holiday is expected to last nine days from Jan. 29 to Feb. 6, while National Day would have four days off from Sep. 1 to 4, including weekends.

For the incoming New Year's Day holiday, workers would get three days off from Jan. 1 to 3. The Reunification Day (April 30) and Labor Day (May 1) holiday would last from April 30 to May 3.

Staff who do overtime or work night shifts during holidays would get at least 300 percent of their normal wage.

Expat workers, apart from the aforementioned 22 days off, would get two days more: one for their countries' New Year holidays and the other for their National Days.
