I wish to stay in Thailand a further 30 days I have just returned from the Cambodian border on a standard visa run and I have received only 15 days at the border yet my friend went to Singapore and returned via Bangkok airport and was given 30 days!! Have they made a mistake at the Cambodian border?

This is not a mistake, If you enter Thailand on a {VOA} which is a 30 day free visa on arrival and you wish to go on a Cambodian visa run or cross a border via land you will only receive 15 days when you re-enter, If you leave Thailand via the airport and re-enter using the airport and not across land you shall be given 30 days. This rule does not apply if you have a current in date visa in your passport acquired from outside Thailand e.g. Non-Immigrant visa multiple entry. Please note- Not all nationalities are given 30 days on arrival so please check your visa status before you arrive. New enforced rules can be less of a headache if you arrive in Thailand with a visa type in your passport.
