Start of summer

On October 23, Fiji will be on Fiji Summer Time (FJST), which is 13 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), or UTC+13, during DST. Towns and cities throughout Fiji, including the capital Suva, will follow the DST schedule.

The nation will revert to Fiji Time (FJT), which is UTC+12, when DST ends on January 22, 2012. The clocks will then move 1 hour back from 3am (03:00) to 2am (02:00) local time.

No formal announcement has yet been made on if Fiji will resume DST next year, but all updates will be on DST dates worldwide in 2012.
