In order to do this, one must fill in an application form at http://www.fan-id.ru/ or register at one of the FAN ID Distribution Centers located in Russia. In combination with a match ticket, a FAN ID will ensure fast and convenient access to the stadium for all spectators.

Foreign citizens and stateless persons can enter Russia visa-free with a FAN ID during the period starting 10 days before the date of the first match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup(TM) and ending on the date of the last match. Therefore, entry into Russia with a FAN ID is possible starting from 4 June through 15 July 2018. The FAN ID holders must leave the country no later than 25 July 2018.

FAN ID also entitles spectators to free travel on additional trains connecting the 2018 FIFA World Cup(TM) host cities and on public transportation of the host cities on match days.
You can get a FAN ID at the FAN ID Distribution Centers in Russia, Rossotrudnichestvo's foreign offices, VFS Global Visa Application Centers worldwide or order postal delivery.
