FIFA World Cup 2018 FAN ID
Starting from mid October 2017 all fans have had an opportunity to get tickets for football tournaments allocated by a random selection draw process organized by FIFA. At the same time fans are encouraged to apply for a FAN ID – the official identity document issued to fans on the web-portal www.fan-id.ru.
Having a FAN ID gives an opportunity to identify every fan, ensures visa-free entry into and exit from the Russia Federation for foreign citizens and stateless persons while crossing the border with Russia, and serves as comfortable access to the stadium for football matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Please find the instruction provided by the organizers of the FIFA World Cup 2018 event about the way the FAN ID could be obtained (in English and Russian).
