Information: On October 26, the Mexican Senate announced that it passed a law to eliminate Daylight Saving Time (DST) in Mexico, which means that from October 30, 2022, when most of Mexico turns the clock back 1 hour, Mexico will only use the standard time in all its time zones, except border cities with the US

Mexico will have spent 26 years using the time change, from 1996 to 2022. The Law excludes Baja California and the border cities of Mexico with the USA.
