The Magpies have been chasing the Internazionale ace all summer and have now sealed a deal to bring him to St James' Park.
Emre has signed a five-year deal at Newcastle after rejecting offers from a host of other clubs.
The 24-year-old, who will not be involved in this weekend's Intertoto Cup, is looking forward to playing in England with Newcastle.
"I am very happy to have signed for Newcastle United because they are one of the biggest clubs in England," Emre told the club's official website.
"This is a very big club and I am so excited about the prospect of playing in the Premiership. It is a new challenge and one I am looking forward to very much.
"I would like to thank the manager Graeme Souness and chairman Freddy Shepherd for having the trust in me to bring me to Newcastle.
"Now I will give my very best for Newcastle and try to bring success to the club."
Emre is the second signing of the summer for Graeme Souness after the arrival of Scott Parker.
