Time Zone: Atlantic Standard Time (AST, GMT-4)

History

Historically, the Turks and Caicos have followed Eastern Standard Time (EST), observing daylight savings time. This was the same time zone as New York City. The Government decided, due to the early sunsets during the busy tourist season, to change to Atlantic Standard Time (no daylight savings), which is also followed by several other Caribbean countries. On March 8, 2015, clocks were moved forward one hour for the last time.

Setting the Time Zone on your Devices

On iOS devices, such as iPhones and iPads, simply search for 'Cockburn Town, Turks and Caicos' in the cities list. iOS does not have 'Providenciales' as an option.

On Android devices, navigate to the time zone setting and choose a city in the GMT-4 time zone (such as Halifax).

Mobile devices with cellular connectivity can obtain the time and time zone from the network.
