Rabat – Morocco’s Embassy in Moscow, Russia, is making Atlas Lions fans trip to the World Cup easier. The embassy has published a guide for fans to ensure their stay in Russia in the best possible conditions.
The embassy’s guide contains important information on the host cities, communication tools, transportation, cultural sites, and laws on the stay in Russia.
Moreover, mobile consulates will be established in the cities that will host the games of the national team “to assist our fellow citizens when needed,” the document said.
However, the document underlines that the embassy will not intervene in certain cases such as “to repatriate at the expense of the State, to help to enter Russia or to intervene with the justice to obtain release if there is involvement in a court case in the territory of the host country.”
Supporters must obtain a FAN ID to access Russian territory during the World Cup, which allows a fan to stay 10 days before the world competition and 10 days after the final, a total of 50 days. Exceeding the authorized stay is illegal.
Obtaining the fan ID “is subject to the acquisition of an entry ticket to the stadium and this document entitles its holder to use public transport, including trains between cities, and to attend FIFA supporter festivals.”
Also, the guide informs travelers that they will receive an immigration card upon arrival which must be kept until departure from Russia. The document recommends fans plan their accommodation well in advance.
For transport, Russian cities have metro, bus, trolleybus, and tram, which are available throughout the day, and each FAN ID holder can travel for free between host cities by train.
The document also provides supporters with a list of numbers to contact in case of emergencies, including that of the ambassador of Morocco.
