FAN ID: what it is and how to get it
What is FAN ID?
Your pass to the world's No. 1 football highlight
You will need a personalized FAN ID to attend the games of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. Every spectator is required to have one: the FAN ID is part of the football fan identification system. With your FAN ID, quick and easy stadium entry is guaranteed.
Visa-free entry to Russia
FAN ID gives foreign citizens, when arriving in Russia for the World Cup matches, the opportunity for multiple entry into the country without issuing visas.
Comfort and free travel
You only need to apply and receive your FAN ID once. With your FAN ID, you can attend any number of Confederations Cup games for which you have tickets. But here is more good news: the FAN ID entitles its holder to free travel between the tournament's host cities.
