Time Usage

Chile does utilize daylight saving time.

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

Previously in January 2015 authorities in Chile announced the country would not turn clocks back one hour when daylight saving time was scheduled to end on Sunday April 26, 2015. Chile instead elected to observe UTC/GMT -3 or the equivalent of daylight saving time year round.
