How about asking your Ministry of Information to make an announcement
about whether or not Fiji will start DST on Oct 26 at 03.00, as the
rest of the world expects it to?
If not, times on some airline tickets may need adjusted, and all
computers updated, as soon as changes can be released by tz and IATA.
You government website provides many contact options for the Ministry.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis
