More about the time in Tokelau
Tokelau consists of a couple of small islands in the South Pacific Ocean. Tokelau uses Tokelau Time TKT. TKT is UTC +1300! The Islands are located at 9° 10’ S and 171° 50’ W. Therefore one would expect time in Tokelau to be 11 hours behind UTC instead of 13 ahead. The country switched from UTC -1100 to UTC +1300 on the 29th of December 2011. The country skipped the 30th of December and by doing so Tokelau passed the international dateline. 2012 was the first time Tokelau was one of the first countries to welcome the new year instead of the last. The decision to cross the International Dateline was made to synchronize the date on Tokelau with other countries in the region (Australia).
