Armenia Time (AMT; Armenian: Հայաստանի ժամանակ, romanizedHayastani zhamanak) is a time zone used in Armenia. Armenia Time is four hours ahead of UTC at UTC+04:00.[1]

Clock time is about one hour later than solar noon in Armenia. Consequently, population activity hours are similar to those in Paris or Barcelona, which have about the same shift to solar time. They are about one hour later compared to those in Berlin and Vienna, and are two hours later than those in Warsaw and New York.

Daylight saving time[edit]

Armenia does not utilize Daylight saving time. The Government of Armenia issued a decree that cancelled the observance of daylight saving time, otherwise known as Armenia Summer Time (AMST) in 2012.[2]

Other time zones in UTC +4[edit]
