It depends on the country. Some countries may require you to have it, others may leave it to the discretion of the immigration officers. If you were traveling with some sort of group trip, then they may not bother asking because it's highly unlikely that a group leader would be abducting anyone. But if you arrive by yourself, it will probably raise more suspicion. Remember that you are never entitled entry to any country, and immigration officers have the right to deny admittance to anyone they find suspicious.
