Ethiopia uses Eastern African Time EAT. EAT is UTC +0300. The longitude of Ethiopia 's most eastern point is close to 48° 00’ E . The longitude of its most eastern point is close to 33° 00’ E. This means it takes the sun about an hour to “travel” from the East to the East of Ethiopia. Therefore the three hours offset between EAT and UTC is close to perfect for the west of Ethiopia but the west of the country gets a late sunrise. Ethiopia's latitude is only 8° 00’ N. Because of its location not far north of the equator the country has no need for daylight savings time.
