Update on DST changes in Venezuela… this September?


Remember the post at the end of August on the new DST rules in Venezuela?

News from my new friend Jose Antonio in our offices in SA says that it may be earlier than reported.

Originally we found in the ABN news release on the DST change that Venezuela would change its time zone on Jan. 1, 2008.

We now hear from government sources that the new DST change will begin at the start of the school year in Venezuela, which is next Monday (September 17). This will be a ½ hour change, from the -4:00 GMT to -4:30 GMT.

More as it develops, but be aware of the pending earlier change.
