AFAIK, Cambodia is not issuing tourist visas at all, but this is an official government website so most people would expect it to be correct. (However, TIC.)
On the site, they also propose E for ordinary visas as available online, without stipulating that it's only for Taiwanese, so unless you apply for an application, you couldn't know that.
I suppose there's no Cambodian Embassy in Taiwan, due to bla bla, yet the Cambodia government want Taiwanese investors and their money without annoying Big Bro, so this is what they've come up with.
No embassy "yet". Lol. https://www.cambodiaimmigration.org/embassy/taiwan
Embassies are interpreting the rules in their own way. Some embassies (not London) have been asking for a negative Covid test when you apply (and then another one to fly).
While some embassies have been ‘kinder’ in granting visas to people with proven connections to Cambodia such as family or long-term retirement.
Always contact your closest embassy and ask them what their requirements are. They will often supply – as London does – a WhatsApp number so you can send copies of documents in advance to be checked.
Some embassies have also been asking for more financial evidence such as bank statements or a company letter stating salary.
No...they are not offering both Tourist and Ordinary Visas, that information has always been on the website.
They are only currently offering the E-type (Ordinary) Visa, but you are right, it is not made very clear on the website unless you actually try to apply.
But the Khmer Times didn't bother to actually conduct any due diligence, extremely poor reporting as per usual.
The e-visa online application for a tourist visa
The E type/ordinary visa, erroneously known also as a business visa even though it isn’t (visa either on arrival, or latterly by application to the embassy, and now also available via online application)
Couldn’t be clearer...
Now, if only they’d used
O for ordinary
Or T (thommotea) ធម្មតា
So Their sacrifice is never forgotten
Bangkok's requirements are insane, to the point where I'm wondering if they are simply fishing for bribes to waive some requirements, which wouldn't surprise me at all.
Otherwise the student visa looks pretty doable with help from a "facilitator" in Cambodia. Still, not for me. While I'd like to visit, I'm not going to jump through any hoops beyond the already convoluted entry process.
