There are three time zones in Chile: continental Chile, Easter Island and Magallanes Region. Clocks change only in two time zones: continental Chile (GMT-4 Standard Time) and on Easter Island and Salas y Gomez Island (GMT-6).
In 2020, Daylight Saving Time (DST) starts at midnight on 6 September (source: T13.CL website.)

Back to DST timeline
Chile reintroduced Daylight Saving Time in 2016.
The move back to DST was announced in May 2016, when the government decided that Standard Time would revert to GMT-4, and Daylight Saving Time would start on 14 August 2016.
One year earlier, in 2015, the government had introduced a permanent DST offset, which meant GMT-3 throughout the year on continental Chile and GMT-5 on Easter Island.
Previously, the DST rule in Chile was from mid-October (first Sunday on or after 9 October) until mid-March (First Sunday on or after 9 March).
