The cost for a new passport at the Russian Embassy in Toronto (MOGiLNY's location) is $30. You may have to spend a little more when factoring in passport photos and other miscellaneous expenses, but you get the point.

The law is that you must be issued a new passport no more than 3 months after the date of applying for a replacement. This, however, does not include the confirmation of citizenship procedure that one must undergo in the absence of a valid document affirming one's Russian citizenship. The latter depends on how quickly the FМS office with which you are registered in Russia is able to process your documents. The general time frame to expect in straightforward cases is anywhere between 2-6 months.

Press conference stating that fans will NOT have a problem getting visa documentation for this trip. Also, you cannot choose whatever hotel you like, there are 2-3 hotels which are dedicated to fans:

Starts ~15:30: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcDjs...2&feature=plcp

Russia-Canada-USA group will play in Ufa Arena, a nice modern arena with 8 000 seats. Sweden-Finland group will play in the smaller 3 900 seats Ufa Sports Palace Arena.

I was in Ufa 5 months ago. Ask your hotel to call for a cab. Riding a cab for 20 minutes is about $4. However the traffic is not as civilized as one could wish.

This is Ufa Arena, the arena that will host the Canada group: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6xfQJtt-DE

Night clubs are completely empty sunday-thursday so I would recommend Hockey fans from western Europe and North America to join together and have a party. The best night clubs are found along the 20km long "prospect" street.

Friday and saturday are really crowded with beatiful professional dancers performing making almost every night club feel like a strip club.

[QUOTE=photofinishbob;41457621]Hi Warren, I'm looking for the same info. Also looked at destiny tours; no prices till Feb. However their prices for previous trips seem very high, I'm sure it can be done much cheaper if you're prepared to spend some time on the net doing the research, I've done the world Juniors twice; Fussen Germany (Lindros) and Heksinki, Finland (Crosby, Ovechkin, Semin). Very enjoyable hockey experiences. For Helsinki I bought 4 tickets on the blue line about 15 rows from the ice; total cost for 4 tickets for all the games not just Canada's was $1285.00 CAD. I plan to buy tickets on my own somehow, book a hotel thru the internet (direct with a hotel, not thru a middle man), find the best flight deal from Toronto to Moscow then take the train to Ufa. I lived in Sochi, Russia for three years and travelled extensively by train which I really enjoyed (cheap as dirt). This way you are not dictated by a tour company schedule; your time is your own. I chuckled when I read some comments of guys taking their girlfriends, reminds me of the saying; would you take a ham sandwich to a banquet?[ yah i would do the same. we were in Pardubice, a few years back, great time, and we are planning on going to Malmo in 2 years.

you are right, now when you include the 6 (worst case scenario) to 3 (wors case scenario) = 9, took me 13 teen month to get confirmed and 3 more to get the passport, as you can tell worst case scenario 9 is tad bid smaller than 16, no? I had to hire a company to work for me and help me get the confirmation, and arrange an appointment bypassing the line as I can't travel to NYC all the time - also I paid 200 for the roundtrip train to NYC and I didn't include the expanses for shipping handling and the photos - had I done that would have been around 1,000

Funny thing is, it's actually 5360km, not 536km.

Wouldn't Chelyabinsk be closer? We're down to 411km, let's find another suitable arena even closer

I thinks tickets won't be available until summer or so.
It was earlier announced that average ticket price will be ~$15.

Its actually common for WJC to be held in a location where there is one first-class arena and one that is not even close to being as good.

Get your tickets early! Ufa is hockey-crazy. They will be sold out in no time. But right now it's too early to start planning. You can PM me anyway. I'm probably going and I've got a 'system' in place for organizing those trips.

It's too early. Check back midsommer. This isn't the Olympics after all.

Another question: I heard that Russia is a very dangerous and racist country and the lynching of people of colour is not unheard of. Also im wondering about the gay-culture in russia, i heard in moscow it is no problem but in small towns like ufa? Would a homosexual African-American male stick out or would it be no problem ? Would i have problems to get a visa because of this ?
