There is no need for any identity to be shown for entry, but it is wise as a tourist to carry your passport or ID with you. I don't carry one myself as an expat, but better to be safe than sorry if a visitor.

Unfortunately there isn't such one (not even a lounge). Instead, you can find more than plenty right around the corner, on the other side of the building (no more than 50/100m).
