You can enter and leave Russia for the 2018 World Cup without a visa only if you have all of the following items and present them at the Russia border:
- A Fan ID.
- A valid match ticket (or tickets), or, if you have purchased tickets during the last-minute ticket sales phase, a print-out of an official e-mail from FIFA confirming that a ticket has been allocated to you.
- A passport valid for at least 6 months after your departure from Russia. The passport must be signed by the passport holder and be undamaged.
Visa-free entry and exit: You may enter Russia from 4th June 2018 (10 days before the opening match will be played) to 15th July 2018 (the day the World Cup Final will be played) and then exit Russia from 4th June 2018 until 25th July 2018 (10 days after the Final). Any stays before or after this will require a visa.
During these dates, if you have all of the above documents, you can also use your Fan ID to transit to Russia via Belarus and leave Russia via Belarus to another country without a Belarus visa. However, if you do not have all of the documents above, or you are travelling to and from Russia via Belarus outside of these dates, you will need a Belarus Transit Visa.
