New Zealand Standard Time (NZST)

The differences of the several time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Coordinated Universal Time" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). The New Zealand Standard Time is consistent with UTC +12.

Countries with the New Zealand Standard Time, in which a switch to daylight saving time is common, turn the clock forward by 1 hour in summer. Like this they switch to New Zealand Daylight Time (NZDT) and reach UTC +13.

The New Zealand Standard Time applies to 2 countries.

There are some other countries, in which the clock strikes just the same hour. These countries have the same temporal distance to UTC (Universal Time Coordinated):
