The time change has already become effective, but at GOAL we bring you all the information on this subject in case of doubt.

A new season begins and with it comes the time change . In Mexico , the population knows that at the beginning of April, their clock is modified to readjust in these first months of 2022.

Although many smart devices make the change automatically, those analog clocks must be changed manually to make way for a schedule where the main idea is that the days last longer and make the most of solar energy.

For this reason, at GOAL we tell you everything about summer time, when it starts and which matches it will affect:

In the rest of the country, summer time 2021 began on Sunday, April 3, specifically at 02:00 in the morning . Some mobile devices advanced an hour and in this way the dawn came earlier than usual.

Sonora and Quintana Roo are the only entities in the country where they did not change their clocks, this for tourist and economic reasons. In the rest of the 30 states of the Republic, it does apply from the days and times mentioned. The summer schedule will last until November, to return to the winter schedule.

Time change 2022: Mexico advances the clock one hour with the arrival of summer time

In the midst of a debate about its practicality that puts its future on edge, Mexico advances the clock to make way for the controversial 2022 summer time

This morning, Mexicans have advanced the clock one hour to synchronize it with the start of summer time, a modification of the legal time that has been carried out year after year in national territory since 1996.

Officially, daylight saving time in 2022 begins at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 3, and ends on the last Sunday in October. In order to avoid confusion, the general recommendation is to advance the clock one hour before going to sleep to wake up the next day with the new time.

When does the time change at the northern border of Mexico?

Although the time change applies in most of the territory, summer time in Mexico has three exceptions: while the states of Sonora and Quintana Roo keep their hours unchanged for economic and tourist reasons respectively, in the 33 municipalities that make up the border strip North, the start of the time change ties with its application in the United States , so that these localities advanced the clock from the second Sunday of March.

Summer time was implemented for the first time in Mexico in April 1996 in order to take advantage of natural light and reduce energy costs, however, currently the measure is the subject of a wide public discussion regarding the supposed saving of electrical energy and the health impact of advancing an hour each beginning of April.

When does daylight saving time end in Mexico?

After seven months as legal time, DST 2022 will end on October 30 at 2 a.m., a few days before the start of autumn. Then it will be time to turn the clock back one hour.
