These are the holidays and bridges in Colombia for 2023

( Spanish) — Colombia will have 20 holidays in 2023, two more than in 2022.

The official holidays in Colombia are marked by the ‘Emiliani’ law or law 51 of 1983 as non-working days.

Some remain on their original date and others, by regulation, are moved to Monday. In 2023, in fact, a total of 13 public holidays fall on Monday.

There are two months without official holidays: February and September. The largest number is concentrated in April, when Easter is celebrated and there are four dates marked as holidays that do not move to Monday. In most months there are two holidays.

Payments on Colombian holidays

The law 51 of 1983 establishes that all workers in the public and private sectors will have the right to “paid rest” on official holidays.

In addition, it sets which 10 holidays are moved to the Monday following the date on which they fall on the calendar.

The law is commonly known as Emiliano after Raimundo Emiliani Román, a politician who served as a congressman, minister and ambassador and who proposed the reform of the Labor Code to establish the holiday system that has been in force since the 1980s.
