NZ Public Holidays API

A standard REST based API for retrieving official NZ public holidays in XML and JSON format. Would want at least 10 years historical and 5 years forward (or the current and next year at a minimum).

Having a trusted (.govt.nz) consistent, reliable and stable means of getting public holiday information for use in related NZ business operations, e.g. holiday pay, scheduling, etc.


Response from
Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment

Data does not exist

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment does not maintain a comprehensive list of dates for previous and future New Zealand public holidays. However, a list of observed public holiday dates for 2020, 2021 and 2022 can be found here: https://www.employment.govt.nz/leave-and-holidays/public-holidays/public-holidays-and-anniversary-dates/.
