Baladiyah ( _ar. بلدية) is a type of Arabic administrative division that can be translated as "municipality". The plural is baladiyat ( _ar. بلديات).

See municipalities of Algeria where Baladiyah is used to refer to tertary level administration divisions, and municipalities of Lebanon, municipalities of Qatar where it is used for top level divisions.

The current municipalities of Libya (the top most administrative divisions) are called "shabiyat", but the former ones were called "baladiyat", sometimes translated as "governorates".
