Time in Venezuela
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (June 2010)|
Until December 30, 2007, 06:59.59 UTC, Venezuela used the UTC−04:00 timezone.
The official time zone of Venezuela is determined by meridian 67° 30' west of Greenwich, UK. This meridian divides the country into two almost symmetrical areas and represents a −4:30 hour offset from Greenwich Mean Time (meridian 0°).
UTC−4:30 was formerly the official time zone in Venezuela from 1912 to 1965, when the government changed it in order to adopt meridian 60° (UTC−4), which passes through Punta de Playa, Delta Amacuro State.
