Start of Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time will commence in New Zealand on Sunday, 25 September 2016.

Daylight Saving Time will commence in New Zealand from 2.00am on Sunday 25 September 2016. This means the clocks will be set forward by one hour. For example, 2.01am will become 3.01am.

Our website and online case management facility on www.iponz.govt.nz will remain available during this transition.

Applications filed or changed on or after 2.00am on 25 September 2016 will follow New Zealand Daylight Time (NZDT).

As a reminder:

  • Tasks due on Sunday will not abandon until the end of Monday.
  • Applications submitted on Sunday will receive Monday as their filing date.
