The Antalya DGMM (in Turkish, Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü) is in the compound of the Antalya Valilik (Governorship), on the southeast corner of the intersection where the main coastal road (D-400) changes direction to the east, and changes roads from northbound Dumlupınar Bulvarı to eastbound Gazi Bulvarı.

Take the exit for D-400 going towards the havalimanı (airport). After you loop around and get on to D-400, get in the right lane. Take the first right turn, which is 345 Sokak. Then make an immediate right turn again onto the service road. This will take you to the Antalya Valilik.

Inside the Compound
There is ample parking for vehicles inside the compound, inside and to the left of the vehicle entrance.
You'll walk through security before entering the main area of the compound. In front of you will be a signpost with several directional arrows. Find the one which says "Göç Idaresi Genel Müdürlüğü." It points you to the foreigners' bureau building, which is at roughly the ten o'clock position as you walk in.
