The Daily Tribune –

Works Ministry announced launching a new updated unified buildings system directory on its building permit portal Benayat. The portal is a one-stop platform for issuing building permits for all building projects, whether Investment, Residential, Industrial, Commercial, etc. The system dubbed ‘version 1.2’ is up on the portal www., said Sheikh Muhammad bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.

The Undersecretary for Municipal Affairs at the Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning said the updated system includes guides for calculating the land areas of real estate units among other facilities.


Accordingly, for planned lands, the authority is capable of issuing a building permit in five days. Benayat enables engineering offices licensed in Bahrain to apply for building permits, enquire on application status, obtain consultation from concerned government entities regarding building permits, pay building permit related fees, and apply for other building-related services.

By utilising an interactive map that provides information for land parcels and centralising all the concerned regulations and requirements under one system, Benayat allows applicants to obtain information necessary for preparing drawings and documents for applying for a building permit.
