Hi Rachteo,

If you have received the actual pass in an e-mail, then only the printed pass is a valid travel document. I assume your apartment owner will be able to print it for you or know about a nearby copy shop. Perhaps there's a print service at the airport, but I am not sure about that.

If you have received a message about collecting the pass at the airport, then the message on your phone might be enough, plus your passport.

Enjoy your stay!
