December 2017 - Russia: Visa-free entry to Russia for the FIFA World Cup.

Football enthusiasts who want to travel to Russia to attend the FIFA 2018 World Cup competitions are exempt from the Russian visa provided they hold a personal spectator card - better known as a FAN ID -, a valid identity document, and an entry ticket to a match (or a document providing the right to receive it).

The FAN ID is the card that any spectator of the 2018 World Cup matches must hold to gain access to the stadiums. In order to get the FAN ID, you must first buy a ticket for the FIFA World Cup, then register on the official website or at a FAN ID distribution center.

Otherwise, you may apply for a tourist visa (or a private visa if you have relatives or friends in Russia). Read more
