AUSTRALIA – Importing vapes soon to be illegal.

Australia-vape-ban

The good news – For now, you are still able to purchase your favourite e-liquids, devices, and hardware from NZVAPOR.

The not such good newsAs of the 1st of March 2024 the TGA is stopping the Personal Importation Scheme for all vaping products. This will mean you will no longer be able to import any vaping products at all. This includes coils, pods, kits, zero mg nicotine products, everything. If it is destined for vaping it will not be allowed to be imported. E-liquids (nicotine or nicotine free), and all vape products will only be available from a licensed therapeutic supplier (i.e. a pharmacy) within Australia, AND flavours will be restricted to Mint, Menthol and Tobacco only.

It’s fair to say; NZVAPOR does not agree with these rules. Much like most of you.

NOTE – we are working on ways for you to continue to get the NZVAPOR products that you love. More on this soon. Please ensure you SIGN UP to our newsletter to ensure you are kept up to date with these major changes.
