The Migrations Central Office (Oficína Central de Migración) was established by the Law on Migration in El Salvador, promulgated on 21 June 1933, and subsequently renamed to Directorate General of Migration (Dirección General de Migración). A formal register of recorded terrestrial migrations was initiated in 1938.
The first Law on Foreigners was promulgated on 1 October 1986. The DGME was established in April 2002 as the merger of the Directorate General of Migration and of the Department of Foreigners (Departamento de Extranjería).

The flag of the DGME is white with the directorate's logo.
