Algeria Daylight Saving time (DST)

Algeria does not observe daylight savings.


Algeria uses Central European Time CET. CET is UTC +0100. Algeria's latitude and longitude is 28° 00' N and only 3° 00' E. Therefore an one hours offset to UTC means the sun rises relatively late in Algeria. Because of its location close to the equator Algeria has no need for daylight savings time. Because other countries in the Central European Time zone have higher latitudes Algeria is the only country in the CET that doesn’t use daylight savings time.
