Requirements to enter Russia for FIFA World Cup 2018

Visitors should have:

1. Air tickets

2. International passport

3. FAN ID issued by the official providers

A FAN ID is a document that visitors must have in order to attend any of the 2018 FIFA World Cup matches and travel without a Visa. You should purchase a ticket, submit an application on this website and get a FAN ID.

Getting a FAN ID for a child

A legal representative of a child (the father, the mother or a representative appointed by a child protection body) can submit an application for a child under the age of 14 years, sign his or her consent for the processing of the child’s personal data, and obtain a FAN ID.

What to do if an airline denies you boarding when using a FAN ID

1. Determine the reason for the denial

2. If there is an error in your personal data, email a request to www.fan-id.ru.

3. If the airline does not recognise your FAN ID as a document allowing you to enter Russia during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, then ask to check that information with a senior representative of the airline.

4. If you are still denied boarding, you can then call the 24 hour multi-chanel spectator registration support +74957411818.
