Time in Qatar
The exact time in Qatar is based on the time zones for Qatar. We will always try to give you the exact time for Qatar. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Qatar might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Qatar are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Qatar, and falls back one hour in the fall for Qatar. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Qatar to improve its tourism and depend less on Qatar's electricity supplies.
