Arrah Department was created in 2009 as a second-level division via a split-off from Bongouanou Department. At its creation, it was part of N'Zi-Comoé Region.

In 2011, districts were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast. At the same time, regions were reorganised and became second-level subdivisions and all departments were converted into third-level subdivisions. At this time, Arrah Department became part of N'Zi Region in Lacs District. In 2012, it was joined with two other departments to form the new Moronou Region.
