The 2018 FIFA World Cup™ will take place in Russia from 14th June to 15th July 2018 and an estimated 500,000 to 1 million football fans will travel to Russia to watch the games. With the World Cup being held in the world’s largest nation, the majority of visitors will use Moscow as the base city because of its transport links with other venues which span a vast geographical distance. There are 11 host cities and 12 venues across Russia.
Visitors staying in Russia for more than seven days must register with the local branch of the Ministry of Interior’s Main Department for Migration Issues. Most hotels will do this automatically, and if you are staying in private accommodation the owner of the property must do this for you. Those visiting Russia for the World Cup must register within 72 hours. You should carry your passport with you at all times. Police carry out random checks, especially during periods of heightened security and failure to produce your passport could lead to a fine.
