Annual leave request letter, Sample & Format

An annual leave request letter is a common letter that an employee gives to the management requesting for leave from work. The days required to be off work are stated in the letter and no reason needs to be given as it is part of the stipulated leave that the employee enjoys.

Dear Sir

RE: Annual Leave Request

I am writing to request your approval to take 6 days off my annual leave for this year. My days of leave requested are from February 3-4 (2 days) and February 7-10 (4 days), 2011. In between is the weekend.

I am taking these days to prepare and to celebrate my ethnic New Year celebration. It is usually very festive and celebrated over 7 days with lots of prayer sessions and communal activities. The commencement date of this New Year is on February 4, 2011.

I shall be reporting back to work on February 11, 2011. I hope that my leave request is granted quickly to enable me to make the necessary preparations for this important celebration.

Yours truly,

Carlos Santos
