While many social scientists produce work on irregular migration based on male experiences, very few works address the female experiences of migration. This thesis aims to explain and analyse female irregular migrants in a host society by focusing on irregular Afghan migrant women in Ağrı, Turkey. Afghan migrants have been the largest irregular migrant community in Turkey since 2018. Although studies in this manner mainly focused on women living in the metropolis, little research was conducted in the cities of Eastern Anatolia Region based on gender issues. Within this framework, this thesis will focus on the experiences and motivations of irregular Afghan migrant women who first entered Turkey. The main contribution of this thesis is to focus on the problematic applications of the state regulations regarding irregular migration. Therefore, the narratives of informants and regulations of local authorities in Ağrı will be analyzed
