The Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM is, in Turkish, called the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlügü. Most Turks just call it the "Göç İdaresi."

Apply Online First

You must apply for your residence (residency) permit using the E-ikamet website, at https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/. At the end of your application, the online system will give you an appointment date (or you will receive one by E-mail or SMS message) for you to bring a signed printout of your application, the required documents, and your passport to the İzmir branch office of the DGMM. During your appointment, an immigration specialist will go over your application package. If it is approved, he or she will give you a temporary residence permit which will keep you legally in Turkey until your residence permit card is printed and sent to your address by registered mail.

How to Get There

Besides viewing the map above, you can also click on the "Plan my route" button. This will take you to Google Maps, where you can enter your starting location and submit it for directions and the route you need to take. If you take a taxi, tell the taxi driver "Göç Idaresi" (guhch ee-dah-reh-see). You can also show the taxi driver your completed online application, which will have the address on it.
