In 1900 the administration in the area was formalized as a district under Mae Hong Son. Originally the district was named Mueang Yuam (เมืองยวม), which was changed in 1917 to Mae Sariang.
The district is divided into seven sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 77 villages (muban). Mae Sariang is also a sub-district municipality (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of the tambon Ban Kat and Mae Sariang. There are a further seven tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
