Fan ID

The FAN ID is an identification document which all ticket holders will need, together with a valid match ticket, in order to enter the stadiums hosting matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

FAN IDs will allow international visitors visa-free entry to the Russian Federation, starting 10 days before the tournament’s opening match and lasting until 10 days after the World Cup final. The system also provides the free use of public transport within and between World Cup host cities.

Football fans visiting Russia from other countries can obtain their FAN IDs through registered small parcel delivery, which they can order on the program’s official website, https://www.fan-id.ru, when submitting an application.

FAN ID delivery is provided by Russian Post (Pochta Rossi) and is free of charge for Russian and foreign football fans.

Russian citizens can collect their personalized FAN ID by presenting identity documents at specially designed postal distribution centers located across 140 Russian cities.

The FAN ID system was successfully tested at the 2017 Confederations Cup last summer, which was hosted in four stadiums across four cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi and Kazan.
