As a result of the October 8th order from the Fijian Government, Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the Republic of Fiji will begin at 02:00 on December 20, 2020 instead of November 8, 2020.


Microsoft plans to release an update to support this time zone change; however, there is insufficient time to properly build, test, and release such an update before the change goes into effect. In the meantime, we recommend that organizations with devices in the Republic of Fiji follow the interim guidance below.


Interim guidance
Microsoft recommends that users temporarily set the time zone on their devices to “(UTC+12:00) Coordinated Universal Time+12” on November 8, 2020 at 02:00. Selecting this time zone will then reflect the correct local time (Note: events that have occurred in the past, before the update, will not show correctly). We recommend returning time zone settings to “(UTC+12:00) Fiji” after an update from Microsoft has been released and installed.

For Microsoft’s official policy on DST and time zone changes, please see Daylight saving time help and support. For information on how to update Windows to use the latest global time zone rules, see How to configure daylight saving time for Microsoft Windows operating systems.
