FIFA advised earlier in the week that they are still dispatching tickets for the tournament. Once a ticket is sent out the lead booker will receive an email confirmation from FIFA (or an SMS) with the tracking details. If, for whatever reason FIFA are unable to deliver tickets to the World Cup, the lead booker will receive an email advising. This email will also contain the 'next step' details for obtaining your tickets in Russia.
FAN IDs are no longer being posted internationally. If you have not ordered your FAN ID you are strongly advised to do so now. Instead of the FAN ID being posted out, supporters will receive an electronic copy which must be printed off and kept with them at all times. This paper copy will allow the ticket holder entry into Russia (together with their passport and migration card). Once in Russia, the FAN ID must be taken to a distribution centre for exchanging for a hard copy. Please be aware that the paper copy FAN ID will not allow you entry into the stadiums in Russia.
Update 9/6/18: Supporters entering or leaving Russia between Monday 4 June- Sunday 15 July now have the right to visa-free transit through the Republic of Belarus with a FAN ID and valid passport. For more information, please visit: http://www.mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/3236511.
Travel Club members are advised that no vouchers are being issued for this tournament. In previous years vouchers were issued for conditional tickets but to reduce the risk of touting or tickets being sold on, vouchers will no longer be issued.
Should England reach the knockout stages of the World Cup, supporters with conditional tickets will be required to collect their tickets in the respective host city. The lead booker will need to be present with the original payment card and those collecting in person will need to bring a form of ID with them.
Supporters are reminded to keep checking the FCO's 'Be On The Ball' campaign for safety and security advice regarding travel into and around Russia. The website to visit is: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/russia

what is a migration card , first I've heard of it ?
2 parts to migration card,you fill one half on entering Russia and hand in , and second part you hand in on leaving Russia .Last time I went they handed them out on the plane to Moscow, but not sure if things have changed.
As Stuart says, nothing that you need to do beforehand.
Who thought game at Elland Road was a pleasant change to Wembley. If Wembley gets sold do you think we will see more internationals spread around the country.
