Residence Permit Renewal... no Availability! (Istanbul)


My residence permit expires in March and my listed permanent address in the permit book is my fiances parents address in Bahcelievler. We currently live in a temporary apartment in Kucukkoy. I assume we still can only make the appointment where my listed permanent address is, correct?

Okay now the problem: The system gives me three dates that are all full. I have been checking everyday for a week now. I understand this is typical but I am going to the US the 2nd week of April for 3 1/2 months. What happens if I cannot secure a date before I leave?

Will I just pay a fine when I return and if so, how much, is it cumulative? Will I need to get a tourist visa upon my return to enter until I have renewed my permit?
