DST future uncertain

Fiji re-introduced seasonal time change in 2009 after having used DST sporadically in the 1990s. The switch dates vary from one year to another and are usually announced a few weeks in advance by the authorities.

It is not yet known if and when DST will be applied in future years. Check our Time Zone News for updates.
