Hours of Operation

Hours of Operation

Adhering to business hours in Fiji can be frustrating, as everyone is on Fiji Time. Generally, banking and post office hours tend to be between 9 am and 4 pm, although offices might close earlier on Friday afternoons; there's a 24-hour bank at Nadi International Airport if you're in a bind. Shops tend to be open weekdays from 9 to 5, and 8 to 1 on Saturday. (If you aim for the hours of 9:30 am to 3 pm, you'll be safe, though many places close for lunch between 1 and 2.) Caf├ęs open around 9, and restaurant hours generally run 11 am to 10 pm. Sunday is a day for family, religion, and rest in Fiji, and very little is open.


In Fiji, official holidays include New Year's Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Prophet Mohammed's Birthday (April), National Youth Day (May), Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna Day (1st Monday in June), Queen's Birthday (mid-June), Birth of Lord Krishna (August/September), Fiji Independence Day (early October), Diwali Festival (October/November), Christmas Day, Boxing Day (December 26).
