Thanks Fernando! The short answer is no, the receiver doesn’t need to add the token to his/her wallet to receive the tokens.

However, if you want to see those tokens in your wallet after you receive them, you will have to add them. Optionally the creator of the token can submit it to wallet products, but each wallet has different requirements for what they consider a token to be added to their lists. They all have a page where they explain those requirements.
