The World Cup is rapidly approaching, and many football fans from all around the world will soon be embarking on their trip to Moscow to watch their country’s team play in the tournament. Although it is a very exciting event and many fans have been waiting in anticipation for a long time now, due to the recent political tensions between Russia and the UK there may be an air of hostility for those travelling out there this summer. People must be extremely aware of their behaviour in the country to avoid any further tensions or conflict. This article is therefore a preparation guide for those who are heading out to Moscow this summer, and so it discusses all the do's and the don’ts to consider during your trip. Preparing for and flying to Moscow If you haven’t already done so you will need to apply for a visa at least four weeks prior to your trip, as it does take about 20 days to process. To find more information on how to apply for a visa, check out both the advice on the FCO website and VFS Global, who are responsible for Russian visa applications. When entering Russia, you will be expected to sign a migration card which is produced electronically at passport control in the major airports. Some airports may require you to complete the migration card manually and you will have to do this each time you enter Russia, even if you have a multiple entry visa. Whilst you are in the airport, you must act responsibly and also look smart and presentable; no shabby or dirty clothing should be worn as you will be fined for doing so. Also, when waiting for a flight in a Russian airport, you will not be allowed to rest or sleep on the floor as it will be rather busy and you may again get fined for clogging up the walkway areas.
