BX Entering into a wall: Is a Fitting or Box Required at the Transistion?


Scenario:
A residential building interior with a junction box mounted on-the-wall (not embedded). BX exits the junction box, is clamped to the wall for a couple feet, then enters into a wall to continue on as a standard room circuit.


Question:
In this scenario does there need to be any sort of fitting or box at the transition point where the BX enters the wall? Or can it just pass through a hole drilled in the wall and travel inside the wall until it meets it's first box?

How about NYC?

No box or transition required.
just make sure to have the proper connectors for use at the boxes.
