E Cigarettes containing Nicotine in Australia
Electronic cigarettes and personal vaporizers are becoming more and more popular worldwide as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes. They still contain the nicotine that your body craves and the avour that you enjoy, but without the carcinogens, tar, carbon monoxide, and other negative aspects of smoking. E cigarettes and personal vaporizers are used very similarly to regular cigarettes, but operate with a battery that vaporizes an e liquid nicotine solution as you inhale.
So you won’t be booted to the bush every time you want a puff!
E Cigarette Regulations in Australia
The laws in Australia do state that it is illegal to sell, advertise, and import for resale electronic cigarettes and related products that contain nicotine. Therefore, the many e cig companies based in Australia that you may be familiar with can only sell electronic cigarettes and products that contain no nicotine.
However, it is very essential to have nicotine in your e cigarette in order to make a successful transition from tobacco based cigarettes to e cigs . If not, you will still crave the nicotine and find yourself bumming OP’s to satisfy your need.
People of Oz, no worries! You can simply order your nicotine e cigarettes, e cigars, personal vaporizers, and e liquid online from a company based outside of Australia, and have them delivered directly to your door.
Ok, we’ll admit it. To order is easy, but not a simplistic decision. Before you order, you must also carefully choose the right nicotine strength and avor that fits you.
Not only do you need nicotine to transition, it has to be the right nicotine strength that matches your current cigarette nicotine levels. If you are currently a smoker, your body craves a certain level of nicotine and will continue to do so until that craving is met. If you choose an e liquid nicotine strength that is too low, your body will crave more nicotine and you will most likely return to your tobacco cigarettes, concluding that the e cigarettes do not work for you. If you choose an e liquid nicotine strength that is too high, the experience could be too intense, also leading away.
So make sure to initially order the appropriate nicotine strength for you. Veppo offers 6 different e liquid nicotine strengths to match the nicotine level your body is used to. See the chart below
Also important upon ordering your e liquid is choosing a avor that you enjoy. Whether you use a classic tobacco avor, menthol, clove, or alternative pallets such as fruity or savory, Veppo has the avor you need to transition successfully.

Hey, Aussies, you CAN vape e cigs with nicotine!
Now that you have the context for smart ordering, here’s what IS the legal way for Australians to purchase e cigarette products with nicotine
In order to purchase electronic cigarettes with the nicotine you want and need, you must order them from outside the country and have them imported. The law in Australia states it is legal to import a 3 month supply of e liquid nicotine for personal use. But what is considered a 3 month supply? That answer is still unclear, so use good personal judgment when ordering.
There is no import prohibition from customs on electronic cigarettes with nicotine for personal use. Also, there are no customs fees for orders under $1000 AUD.
That’s it! No biggie. Now you’re good to go.
Here’s a step by step checklist while ordering (in case you missed the gigantic infographic above)

Choose your style of electronic cigarette or personal vaporizer
- Choose your e liquid nicotine strength and avor(s)

Marginally cheaper at duty free as there is some tax on cigs here. it works out about 2 quid difference on a carton of 200 Marlboro.
Unless you smoke a brand that isn' t available here, in which case you should buy on departure in the UK.
Alcohol is much cheaper at duty free and worth buying on arrival if you' d like a drink in your hotel room. You can buy mixers from the supermarket and probably get some ice from housekeeping.
There' s a DF price list here /
