I'm pretty sure that you're only allowed 2x 30 day visa exempt stamps in a year now at land border crossings.
Of course, your friend would have been getting the 30 day stamp by entering Thailand even though he was going straight back to Cambodia.
So, those who have been using Thailand as an entry/exit country to renew their visas/permits to stay in other countries are caught up in this as well. As are those who used to pop over to Thailand regularly to do shopping - ie from Cambodia or Laos.
Maybe that's why the Imm officer suggested putting down shopping as the reason for the visit?
But as far as breaking the rules are concerned, the likely transgression is that your friend has entered Thailand on 30 day stamps too many times in a year.
Crazy, isn't it?
Hi lomu,

I'm aware of this new rule and I asked my friend about how often he'd been to Thailand on 30 day stamps.
He hasn't been to Thailand for more than 2 years!!! Go figure :cuss: :banghead:
