1Hong Kong vape laws:

Under the Pharmacy and Poisons Ordinance (Chapter 138, Laws of Hong Kong), nicotine is a Part I poison. E-cigarette and e-liquid containing nicotine is regarded as pharmaceutical product and must be registered with the Pharmacy and Poisons Board before sale or distribution. Possession or sale of unregistered pharmaceutical product, and the possession or sale without authority of Part I poison, are both offences. Each offence shall be liable on conviction to maximum penalty of $100,000 fine and 2 years’ imprisonment.

2Can I vape in Hong Kong 2018

Vape is the same as the cigarette. Cigarette smoking (including e-cigarette) is banned in no smoking areas under the Smoking (Public Health) Ordinance (Chapter 371, Laws of Hong Kong). No smoking areas include all indoor public areas and some outdoor areas such as school campus, public parks and beaches. Offenders are subject to a fixed penalty of fine $1,500. Outdoor areas and private space are free to vape.

3Can I take my e cigarette to Hong Kong airport?

It depends on whether your vape contains nicotine or not. No nicotine vapes are free to go when taking vapes with nicotine will be arrested and fined HK$100,000. That’s just the law. However, I can tell you that any enforcement (if it exists at all) is very light-on. My friends have been through HK to SZ with E-Cigs many times without any problem.
