If the online appointment system gave you an appointment, then you have to go to the appointment. In many cases (and provinces)  you can mail the documents in, but in Istanbul an appointment is required.

The computer system tells you which one. If you can mail it in, the computer system will tell you to do that and give you the address. If you have to go to an appointment, the system will tell you that also, and give you dates from which to choose.

So basically yes, you have to take your documents with you to the appointment. You can't mail them in.

Just note that there are some African countries which are required to apply as a fresh candidate (even at the time of renewal). So if this is the case with your nationality you will need to apply as 'first application' and you will definitely be given an appoint which would be at least 2 months later than your date of applying. 


And if you applied for residence permit renewal and system gave you 8th January date and if you happen to be in Istanbul?? If this is the case then its super. For me I had to wait 105 days for my appointment; applying and appointment were 105 days apart from each other (Short term touristic).
