Russia allowed visa-free entry to foreign fans for Euro 2020

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a document opening entry to Russia for foreigners who take part in the events of the European Football Championship or have tickets for matches. This was reported by "Interfax" with reference to the press service of the organizing committee of the championship in St. Petersburg

“We met the understanding of the federal authorities and were able to open the border for those who are going to come to us in St. Petersburg for a football holiday in the summer,” said Alexei Sorokin, Director General of the Euro 2020 Organizing Committee. He also noted that the entry permit does not override the epidemiological rules, in particular, it will be necessary to provide a negative test for COVID-19. Holders of tickets for the championship matches in St. Petersburg will be able to enter Russia without a visa using a “fan passport”. The permit also applies to members of UEFA official delegations, personnel involved in the preparation and conduct of the tournament, match participants, media representatives and volunteers. All of them will be able to issue entry visas in a simplified manner. Fans who have come to the tournament will be able to stay in Russia until July 12. The European Championship 2020 will be held from June 11 to July 11. St. Petersburg will host seven matches of the tournament.
