Time Zones by Country 2022

map placeholder

Time zones are imaginary vertical bands that wrap around the Earth, marking the distance (in 1 hour increments) from the international reference meridian. This distance determines the local time of day in each time zone. Time zones compensate for the Earth's rotation, enabling sunrise and sunset to occur at approximately the same time of day no matter where on Earth one is located.

For example, if sunrise occurs at 6:00 am in London, England, it will also happen at around 6:00 am in New York, USA, even though the sunrise in New York happens five hours later (when it is 11:00 am in London) because New York is five time zones away. Because Earth rotates 360° every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.09053 seconds,, enabling the equation 360°/24 hours to determine time zone width, each time zone is approximately 15° of longitude wide.

World Time Zones by Country*

Observed world time zones by country or territory are listed in the table below. Many countries touch multiple time zones due to their sheer size and/or because they have overseas territories such as Denmark's territory Greeland. Daylight Saving Time (DST), which shifts local time by an hour in order to maximize daylight hours during certain times of year, is widely used in Europe, North America, and some parts of Africa, Australia, and South America. A few countries also use "winter time", a nearly identical time-shifting system, to the same effect.
