Systems, apparatuses, and methods for migrating memory pages are disclosed herein. In response to detecting that a migration of a first page between memory locations is being initiated, a first page table entry (PTE) corresponding to the first page is located and a migration pending indication is stored in the first PTE. In one embodiment, the migration pending indication is encoded in the first PTE by disabling read and write permissions. If a translation request targeting the first PTE is received by the MMU and the translation request corresponds to a read request, a read operation is allowed to the first page. Otherwise, if the translation request corresponds to a write request, a write operation to the first page is blocked and a silent retry request is generated and conveyed to the requesting client.
