FIFA 2018 World Cup Essentials by  

       Welcome to FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia!  

       It's a great sports event and undoubtedly all football/soccer fans are super excited about coming over to Russia to watch the best teams fight to win. However, this only adds extra hassle for regular travelers who are worried that their travels might be impacted by the sporting events, security measures, street closures, hotel room unavailability and crowds of people everywhere.

       We encourage all visitors to pre-book everything in advance to guarantee availability as due to the very high demand all services ordered last minute might not be available. There will definitely be a shortage of guides and transport during the period of FIFA games in Russia from June 14 to July 15, 2018

       ULKOtours team is here to assist you and answer your quieries about visiting Russia during this busy period. Please don't hesitate to call us with any questions directly.


       We are here to make you feel safe and take all the planning stress away!



Tickets & FAN ID

To attend a game you MUST have a valid ticket and a FAN ID.

Please be aware that no reselling of tickets is permitted and all tickets must be obtained directly from  FIFA Official Website.
In addition to your game ticket you must obtain a personalized FAN ID which is obligatory for all attendees, including children. FAN IDs cannot be transferred to another holder and they are required to enter the game venue on the day of the event.
There are many more benefits of getting a FAN ID like free visa-free entry to Russia (condition apply), free transportation between host cities (must be pre-booked) as well as free shuttle bus transfers to/from games in each host city. 

To get a FAN ID and read more about the benefits please visit https://www.fan-id.ru/






Accommodations

We encourage all visitors to pre-book hotel accommodations in advance as due to the high demand rooms are being sold away in a blink. 

On the other hand, a lot of hotel  will be keeping large blocks on rooms on hold for large group accommodations until spring 2018 and it's inevitable that a lot of rooms will finally become available after the hold is released. If you are flexible about accommodations and don't have any special preferences then it makes sense to wait and get a deal. Otherwise, we are here to assist you with selecting your rooms right now.





Visa to Russia

For all game attendees who have obtained their FAN IDs there will be NO VISA required to enter Russia!
If you are not going to attend any matches but will be traveling together with a family member or a friend who will be a attending a match (and thus does not need a visa), you STILL DO NEED A VISA, unless your country is on the visa-free list with Russia.
