Time in East Timor

Last updated

East Timor uses UTC+09:00. In the west the country borders the UTC+08:00 zone of Central Indonesia and in the east the UTC+09:00 zone of that country. Daylight saving time is never observed in East Timor, due to its proximity to the equator; there is only a small variation between the length of day and night throughout the year. East Timor shares the same time zone with Japan, Palau, North Korea, South Korea, and Eastern Indonesia.
