Clocks will go back one hour during Ramadan, a cabinet spokesperson announced via Facebook on Friday.
The time change, which reduces daylight hours, will last from 27 June until 1 August.
In April 2011, the cabinet headed by prime minister Essam Sharaf endorsed a decree cancelling daylight saving time.
Daylight saving time was first adopted in Egypt in 1988 as a way to reduce electricity consumption. The energy ministry later submitted a study to the cabinet showing the move had no impact on energy consumption.
In Egypt, standard time is GMT (UTC)+2. Daylight saving time is GMT+3.
