More about the time in Egypt

Egypt uses Eastern European Time EET. EET is UTC +0200. Egypt's latitude and longitude is 30° 06' N and 31° 25' E. Therefore a two hours offset between EET and UTC is exactly as expected. There is no daylight savings time in Egypt. This might surprise you because Egypt’s latitude isn’t that low. In fact Egypt only recently stopped using daylight savings time. Before 2015 daylight savings time was used but not every year. Of course they might change their mind again, you should check this website before you go there in the future.
