The Republic of Guinea-Bissau currently celebrates 10 public holidays. These are regulated under sections 68-71 of the Labour Code. These sections provide all employees with non-working days for any nationally declared public holiday.
The government of Guinea-Bissau reserves the right to establish one-time national holidays for any event. Because of the instability of the government, each president has used this power for different reasons. However, it should be noted that there continues to be a lot of instability in this region and non-working days can be declared at any time.
