When it comes to the legality of vaping for persons under the age of 18 in Australia, the law is clear: it is illegal to sell an electronic cigarette device to anyone under the age of 18. This is not limited to e-cigarettes that contain nicotine, but rather all e-cigarettes. If you’re under the age of 18, e-cig retailers are prohibited from selling you an electronic cigarette, regardless of whether or not it has nicotine in it.
This comes as a result of a law passed by the Victorian Parliament in October 2016.
That’s really all there is to it. The law is the law and there’s no if, ands, or buts. If you’re not at least 18 years old or older, you simply cannot legally buy an e-cig in Australia.
If you’re in another country, please do keep in mind that the vaping age requirement in your country or state may differ from that of Australia. In the United States, for instance, some states require individuals to be at least 18 years of age to purchase an e-cigarette device while other states have a legal vaping age of 21.
In some countries, vaping is outright illegal no matter the age. This is why Aus Vape always recommends checking the vaping laws in not only the country you reside, but any country that you may be travelling to as well.
Buy E-Cigs In Australia
If you’re of legal vaping age and live in Australia, it is possible to legally buy nicotine e liquid and electronic cigarettes from online stores like VaperEmpire.com. You do need to keep your order under $1,000 and buy no more than a 3-month’s supply for personal use at a time. So long as you do all that, you’re all set.
