Timezones in Brazil

There are several timezones in Brazil. Countries with a large distance from West to East are often devided into two or more timezones to adjust daytimes to the position of the sun. Timezones are always computed relatively to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated".

In Brazil exists a time difference of up to 2 hours between the East and the West. Like in most parts of the USA, there is a distinction in Brazil drawn between standard time and daylight saving time (also called winter time and summer time), but this distiction is not nationwide. 3 regions put the clocks forward by 1 hour in summer. 6 regions keep the standard time year-round.

The next clock change in Sao Paulo will be on November 04th, 2018 at 0:00 to daylight saving time.
