Time in Chile
||It has been suggested that Daylight saving time in Chile be merged into this article. (Discuss) Proposed since June 2013.|
Time in Chile is divided into two time zones. Continental Chile uses two time zones, Chile Standard Time (CLT, UTC-4) and Chile Summer Time (CLST, UTC-3). Additionally, Easter Island uses Easter Island Standard Time (EAST, UTC-6) and Easter Island Summer Time (EASST, UTC-5).
In 2013, Chile moved from CLST to CLT on April 27, and moved back to CLST on September 7.
