Return of Daylight Saving in Morocco

From this Sunday, July 2, at 02:00 in the morning, the legal time in Morocco will be advanced by 60 minutes (GMT + 1), according to the Ministry of Reform of Administration and Civil Service

Switching to Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the spring and switching back to standard time for the duration of Ramadan, has been criticised by some Moroccans who claim it disrupts their sleep patterns. For their part, the government says that daylight saving increases the competitiveness of the national economy by reducing the cost of energy bills and facilitating transactions with regional economic partners, mainly in Europe.

Travellers are reminded to double check their flight times.

Daylight saving ends on Sunday, 29 October, when at 03:00:00 clocks are turned backward 1 hour.
