Time in the Virgin Islands

Both the USVI and the BVI are located in the Atlantic Standard Time Zone, which puts them one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time (New York City and Miami).

It should be noted, however, that unlike most of the U.S. mainland, the Virgin Islands do not observe daylight savings time. Therefore Atlantic Standard time and Eastern Standard time are the same during the summer months.

Time Difference
Virgin Islands 3:00 p.m.
New York 2:00 p.m. local time minus one hour
London 8:00 p.m. local time plus five hours
Paris 9:00 p.m. local time plus six hours
Tokyo 5:00 p.m. the next day local time plus 14 hours
Los Angeles 12:00 p.m.
local time minus three hours
Honolulu 10:00 a.m. local time minus five hours
