Rogozin is due to arrive in Brussels by the end of January. NATO spokesman James Appathurai said in November that the alliance was ready to work with Rogozin.
The foreign affairs committee of Russia's upper house of parliament unanimously approved Rogozin in November as the country's envoy to NATO.
Rogozin came to public attention as the leader of the nationalist political bloc Rodina (Motherland) in 2004. The party was subsequently banned from the 2005 Moscow Duma elections over a nationalist campaign advert urging voters to "clean Moscow of 'rubbish'."
Rogozin, also a former chairman of the lower house committee for foreign affairs, was earlier considered a pro-Kremlin politician and held the post of presidential envoy to the Kaliningrad Region, a Russian exclave between Poland and Lithuania.
Rogozin, characterized by his colleagues as an experienced and flexible diplomat, said earlier if appointed to the post he would have to solve "very important issues," including international terrorism and the status of Kosovo, adding that "the whole of Serbia is pinning its hopes on Russia."
