Magadan Time (Russian: Магада́нское вре́мя, Magadanskoye vremya) or MAGT, is a time zone in Russia, named after Magadan, the administrative center of Magadan Oblast. It is twelve hours ahead of UTC (UTC+12) and eight hours ahead of Moscow Time (MSK+8).

On March 28, 2010, the two federal subjects of Russia using Kamchatka TimeKamchatka Krai and Chukotka Autonomous Okrug—moved one hour backwards to Magadan Time, which made Kamchatka Time unused.

On March 27, 2011, Russia moved to year-round daylight saving time. Instead of switching between UTC+11 in winter and UTC+12 in summer, Magadan Time became fixed at UTC+12.
