The laws in Australia that deal with vaping, especially with e liquid that contains nicotine, can seem a little complicated at first, but they’re actually quite straightforward. In this article we’re going to explain them clearly so that you know exactly what you can and can’t do.

The short version is:

  • It’s illegal to sell e liquid with nicotine within Australia, meaning you can’t buy e liquid with nicotine if it’s being sent to you from within Australia.
  • It’s legal to vape using e liquid with nicotine in all states except Queensland.
  • It’s legal to import e liquid with nicotine into all states except Queensland.

 

Is vaping legal in Australia?

As an individual, you are allowed to vape using e liquid that contains nicotine in all states except for Queensland.

Where you can vape in public differs from state to state, but the general consensus is that if you can’t smoke a cigarette there, you probably shouldn’t be vaping there either. For us at Vape-ware this is as much about general conscientiousness as it is about legality. Just because there’s no smoke it doesn’t mean we should be blowing our vapor at people who may not appreciate it.

 

Is it legal to import e liquid with nicotine into Australia?

As an individual, it is legal to import e liquid with nicotine into all states except Queensland.

How much e liquid can I import? You can import up to 3 months supply in one shipment, and you can import up to 15 months supply within a year.

What does this even mean?  We don’t know exactly, and nobody else does either. But to be on the safe side, we only ship up to 6 50ml bottles in one shipment. One 50ml bottle can last someone on average 10 days, so 6 bottles would mean 60 days, well within the 90 day limit.

 

Where can I buy e liquid with nicotine in Australia?

In Australia you can’t, but you can order nicotine e liquids from overseas from vendors like us. Our distribution centre is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia so we are able to source our e liquids from around the world, store them safely and ship them to Australia quickly.
