Currently, the Baikal-GVD neutrino telescope consists of 7 clusters of 288 photodetectors. Each cluster is a functionally complete detector which can register events in stand-alone mode and jointly with other clusters. Joint operation of the clusters requires time synchronization with nanosecond accuracy. This paper presents the methods of time synchronization of the clusters, the results of a study of the synchronization accuracy using laser beacons, and first results of combining events from several clusters.
