Russia FAN ID EURO UEFA 2020-2021

How to enter Russia without visa with FAN ID?

Prior to coming to Russia for UEFA EURO 2020, you need to obtain a FAN ID. 

It is used both to enter and leave Russia without a visa and also to access the stadium in St Petersburg. Foreign visitors holding tickets for matches can apply for FAN ID online at fan-id.ru website. Once your application is approved (it may take up to 72 hours), you can print out the electronic document and use it when clearing customs in St. Petersburg. A physical laminated card must be obtained once you are in St. Petersburg at one of the FAN ID distribution centers. Electronic form does not grant access to the stadium.

If you decide to renew your passport, you can apply for FAN ID with existing passport and once your application is approved, you can enter the correct data in your application. You will receive a control code to confirm the changes.

Where to get?

FAN ID can be collected at the following addresses in St Petersburg:

48 Nevsky Prospekt

72 Primorsky Prospekt, Piterland Shopping Centre, 2nd Floor

On match days, FAN IDs can also be collected at the outdoor tents near the stadium. 

Visa-free entry to St Petersburg

All foreign citizens holding tickets for UEFA 2020 games use their FAN IDs to enter Russia without visa. FAN ID printed electronic forms and passport are used to enter and exit St Petersburg. You can enter and exit multiple times with your FAN ID. You also need to present negative PCR test that is valid for 72 hours.

The pdf file with personal data and a photo of the spectator sent to the email specified when applying for the FAN ID serves as the confirmation of the FAN ID electronic form. The pdf file must be printed on A4 paper and carried with you when traveling to St Petersburg.

The FAN ID electronic form is designed only for visa-free entry into and exit from Russia and does not grant access to the stadium. To access the stadium, you must obtain a FAN ID on a laminated card. During the UEFA EURO 2020 matches a sufficient number of the FAN ID Distribution Centers will be operating, including near the Saint Petersburg stadium, where you can quickly get your FAN ID.
