I'm traveling to the FIFA World Cup this summer and there was a question that came up after buying train tickets. For my USA passport I used the suffix in my name, "Jr" for Junior. But my train tickets have the correct surname and first name, but not my suffix. I didn't place one because on the online site (rzd.ru) it didn't have an option for one.

Would this be a problem or do they understand that many of the international travelers coming in for the World Cup may have non-standard names where their tickets may not exactly match their passport?

  • Did the ticket require you to enter your FAN ID? Then it’s the name match on the Fan ID and your passport which matters more. Jun 9 '18 at 6:52
  • Nah I purchased it from rzd.ru. it asked for last name, first name, and middle name. I left that response blank for middile name, because I don't have one. But I've been seeing people say you can put your suffix in middle name.

  • Years ago, up to three typos were allowed in tickets, unsure if it still holds.

  • @bipll Thanks for that info! I'm just used to most systems that give you a middle name option and a suffix option. Also from what I've been hearing from people is that there will be leniency to most because of the World cup.

No, nobody will care about the suffix. Relax and enjoy your trip.
