Permit Arlington now available

Permit Arlington permits offer:

  • Online applications;
  • Online plan review and revisions;
  • Online payment;
  • Email notifications; and
  • Permit process tracking through your online account.

Additional permits will move online during 2020 and 2021, as system development continues. Until a permit’s transition, it will continue to be processed through current options.

Available anywhere, anytime

The Permit Arlington system is available 24/7. You can apply from your computer or mobile device. Because applications, supporting documents, and payments are collected online, you no longer need to make a trip to the Arlington County Permit Office.

We’re here to help

We know that navigating a new process can be challenging. We have a support team in place to help online, in person, or by phone.
