A FAN ID is a personalized document which is obligatory for everyone who has a ticket to any of the games of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. It provides holders with a visa-free entry to Russia during the World Cup, with fans being able to enter the country ten days before the first match and stay until ten days after the last game.

"There are many moments that we can adopt: FAN IDs, security services' work, the way all the services cooperate. I think that not only we will learn from Russia after this World Cup, the whole world will adopt this experience of hosting the World Cup. Russia set standards that are higher than any standards that have been set previously," Al Thawadi said.

Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup from November 21 to December 18, 2022.
