This should do it.

dtmTime = DateAdd("n", 30, Time)
strNewTime = Right("0" & Hour(dtmTime), 2) & ":" & Right("0" & Minute(dtmTime), 2)

Try this custom function from http://classicasp.aspfaq.com/date-time-routines-manipulation/can-i-make-vbscript-format-dates-for-me.html

Function Format(vExpression, sFormat) 
 
        set fmt = CreateObject("MSSTDFMT.StdDataFormat") 
        fmt.Format = sFormat 
 
        set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset") 
        rs.Fields.Append "fldExpression", 12 ' adVariant 
 
        rs.Open 
        rs.AddNew 
 
        set rs("fldExpression").DataFormat = fmt 
        rs("fldExpression").Value = vExpression 
 
        Format = rs("fldExpression").Value 
 
        rs.close: Set rs = Nothing: Set fmt = Nothing 
 
End Function 
 
Dim dTime
 
dTime = Format(CStr(DateAdd("n", 30, Time())),"hh:MM")
 
msgbox dTime
