The My Documents government services centres have issued a reminder about the new rules relating to registration requirements that have been introduced in Moscow for both Russian and foreign fans arriving in the capital for the FIFA World Cup in effect until 25 July.
Not only for football fans
The new rules apply not only for football fans but also other tourists and people visiting Moscow, staying with friends or renting apartments in the city during the World Cup. They will need to register in the place where they are staying. This can be done at local police stations or at My Documents government service centres. Registration must be made within three days upon the arrival in Moscow. Applications and documents can only submitted in person.
Hotels, resorts or guest houses will be responsible for registering foreign tourists at the places where they are staying within three days of their arrival at local police stations or at My Documents centres.
Registration at convenient times
To make everything run smoothly local migration services will have to work a seven-day work week and follow a new schedule. They will be open from 9 am to 8 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and from 11am to 8 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sundays. Between 2 pm and 2.45pm these places will be closed.
World Cup ticket holders need to get FAN IDs. To obtain these identification documents fans must register online at the official website, and then collect their FAN IDs at one of the four designated government service centres:
Zamoskvorechye government services centre: 13 Bakhrushin Street;
— Begovoy government services centre: 33 Pravdy Street;
— Town of Moskovsky government services centre: Town of Moskovsky, 21 Third District;
— The flagship government services centre in the centre of Moscow: 2 Presnenskaya Embankment, Afimall City shopping centre, ground floor.
Over 10,000 fans have already received their Fan IDs at My Documents centres.
The My Documents government service centres are situated throughout Moscow. They are open daily from 8 am to 8 pm. The main office works from 10 am to 10 pm. The centres are ready to welcome all visitors arriving in Moscow for the world’s premier sporting event.
