Difference between Visa free & Visa on arrival
Visa free entry means that entry is a formality but, Visa on arrival means that an immigration official at your arrival point is responsible for making the final decision as to whether or not you will be granted Visa and they could decide to deny you entry.
Eg. Country like India where an Indian citizen wants to go Iran, Bhutan, Nepal these country official don’t ask you Visa that is called Visa free & in case of Visa on arrival a citizen of any country wants to go other country and that other country officials ask to that imigrant on his/her arrival that is called Visa on arrival.
Here, Visa on arrival is risky because you have any documents problem etc situation then the official will give you Visa is not guaranteed & they can send you back to your country even if you go there for any work.
