How to convert time from Brasília Time (BRT) to Korea Standard Time (KST)

Converting between Brasília Time (BRT) and Korea Standard Time (KST) could be challenging. As companies become more global, we find ourselves in a mess of calendar invites. Time changes from BRT cities like São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Brasília are 12 hour(s) apart to KST cities like Seoul, Busan, Incheon, Daegu, holiday schedules, and the basic communication becomes a juggling act. To make it easier to understand, we'll break down the process of converting time between BRT and KST into step-by-step instructions.

Step 1: Understanding Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time

Brasília Time is UTC-3, which means that the local time in the Brasília Time zone is -3 hours apart from UTC. Korea Standard Time is UTC9, which means that the local time in the Korea Standard Time zone is 9 hours apart from UTC.

Step 2: Calculate the Time Difference

To convert time from Brasília Time to Korea Standard Time, we first need to find the time difference between both time zones. Since Brasília Time is UTC-3 and Korea Standard Time is UTC9, the time difference is: 12 hour(s)

  • 12 hours = Brasília Time's difference from UTC 9 + (Korea Standard Time's difference from UTC -3
  • Korea Standard Time has 12 hour(s) difference Brasília Time.

Understanding Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time

Brasília Time is UTC-3, which means that the local time in the Brasília Time zone is -3 hours apart from UTC. Korea Standard Time is UTC9, which means that the local time in the Korea Standard Time zone is 9 hours apart from UTC.

Step 4: Practice Converting Times

Now that you know the process, try converting different times from Brasília Time to Korea Standard Time for practice before going to the answer page. Remember to always add the Korea Standard Time time difference to the Brasília Time time.

Scheduling a meeting between Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time

When scheduling a meeting between employees in the Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time zones, there are several factors to consider to ensure that the meeting is convenient and productive for all participants. Here's a detailed breakdown of what you should consider before scheduling across time zones:

  • Convert Time Difference: As we've discussed earlier, Korea Standard Time is 12 ahead of Brasília Time. It's crucial to take this time difference into account when scheduling a meeting to avoid scheduling conflicts or creating meetings at odd or inappropriate hours. In my experience, accidentally scheduling a meeting a 4am is awkward.
  • Overlapping Working Hours: To find a suitable time for the meeting, you’ll need to identify the overlapping working hours between the two time zones. For example, if employees in both zones work from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM local time, the overlapping hours could be between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM Brasília Time but 12 hours different to Korea Standard Time. Be upfront with Korea Standard Time employees to find the right time.
  • Consideration of Local Holidays: Be mindful of local Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time holidays, festivals, or observances in both time zones. These events might affect employee availability or working hours. Check local calendars for both the Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time zones to avoid scheduling conflicts.
  • Communicate Time Zone Differences: Clearly communicate the meeting time in both Brasília Time and Korea Standard Time to avoid confusion. Using a tool like an online meeting planner or time zone converter can help simplify the process and ensure accuracy.

Converting time zones across other countries

The process of converting time between two time zones is similar regardless of the countries involved. You'll need to determine the time difference between the two zones and add it to the time in the first zone. Keep in mind that some countries may observe daylight saving time or have different time zones within the country. It's important to double-check the time difference before scheduling any meetings or events.
