Situated on 25° 16' north latitude and 55° 16' east longitude, Time in Dubai is four hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time or GMT, which means that most of the flights to this middle-east destination adjust themselves so that they either reach the country during daytime or in the midst of darkness. In fact, Dubai Time is adjusted on the basis of the geometrical subdivision of the spheroid Earth 24 lunes or wedge-shaped sections, each bordered by meridians 15° of longitude apart.
The difference in the local Time in Dubai is actually controlled by the GMT, like all other worldwide countries. However, the geographical and political practicalities of Dubai result in the irregular nature of its time zones, which either follow the political boundaries or alter their times seasonally, depending upon the availability of the daylights. The rare changes in the country's political situations also have great effects on the Time in Dubai.
The variation in the Dubai Time indicates two things; it either represents a particular place in Dubai with a fixed local time offshooting from the global reference usually called the UTC. Or this may also mean a place within the country which has a fixed local time, even with occasional variations in its offsets.
On the whole, Time in Dubai depends on the apparent position of the sun. That is precisely why the country's time differs from other places on the globe, based on the difference in its geographical longitude and relative position from the sun.
