Time Usage

Chile does utilize daylight saving time.

When daylight saving time ended on May 14, 2017 in Chile the Magallanes Region remained on daylight saving time year round. This resulted in the Magallanes Region, including the capital city Punta Arenas and all provinces in the region, observing UTC/GMT -3.

Previously, in March 2016 authorities in Chile announced the country would end the use of observing UTC/GMT -3 year round and turn clocks back one hour as of May 14, 2016 (Midnight between Saturday and Sunday). The country remained on its previous standard time UTC/GMT -4 from May 15, 2016 through August 13, 2016. Then for the following nine months the country utilized daylight saving time.
