I have a question. I'm going to arrive to Copenhagen at the end of August/beginning of September following the receipt of the Green Card visa. In the cover letter which I received along with it, it is stated that in order to get the CPR number, I have to register myself at the "Borgerservice" no later than 5 days after arrival to Denmark.
On Kobenhavns Kommune's website (http://goo.gl/vA6ylQ) it is stated that in order to receive the CPR number, along with all the other documentation I will have to present the confirmation of accommodation in Copenhagen, and to indicate my address in Copenhagen in order to receive the CPR card by mail.
My question is: does it mean that a person is obliged to find an accommodation within five days upon arrival to Denmark, or do they imply something else here? My intention was to book a room in a hotel for a week or so, while looking for a room to rent, but I wasn't aware of this five days period, as I'm not sure whether it will be possible to find a room to rent and to appear at the Borgerservice, all in a five days time.
Perhaps there is someone who has been in a similar situation, I would be very grateful for information on this matter - is the five days period so strict indeed? Or it's not something I have to worry about? I would be grateful for advice.
