The State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted in the third reading the law on the Visa-Free entry into the country for foreign owners of FAN ID. Till the 31st of December, the holders of the FAN ID will be able to enter the country without a Visa multiple times. The Federal Law draft has been prepared based on the positive experience of the FIFA World Cup 2018.
The family members of the foreign fans, who have attended the FIFA World Cup in Russia, would be able to obtain a Russian Visa free of charge. "Using FAN ID will allow entering Russia without visas until the end of the year, and family members and friends who will accompany the FAN ID owners will be able to get free visas," said Vladimir Putin on a meeting with the construction workers of the Kaliningrad Stadium and the city volunteers.
According to the Rostourism, the Visa-Free entry will increase the number of the foreign visitors to the country and will positively influence the development of the country's economy.
