Hong Kong E Cigarette Law – Read Before Vaping in Hong Kong

Hong 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.

Can I vape in Hong Kong 2020

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.

Can 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.

I moved to HK a few years back, and haven’t vaped ever since. But I want to restart it for stress-coping. Would I be able to get ejuice with nicotine if I ordered ejuice from the website you mentioned in the article? I’m in dire need here

Hey, vapeHK.
I have just moved to HongKong from Australia. And I run out the ejuice. I ordered the nicotine ejuice from US as usual as I did in Australia. Tonight, my friend told me that I will be fined and imprisonment if the custom find out the parcel. I bought 10 bottles 60ml w/ 3mg nicotine. Should I email the supplier to stop the parcel?

Can you recommend any shop in Shenzhen? I might go and buy from there in the future. But I am afraid the quality from China.

Hello people.
I am flying from London to Saigon with a change of plane (transit) in Hong Kong. Will I have problems if I carry my mod and 60ml of 12mg juice? Do they check your carry on luggage when you transfer through HK airport?
Thanks

Hi, I really need some urgent advice. I’m travelling to the Philippines from California with a new vape and have a 10 hour layover in Hong Kong. I just read a recent article posted earlier this year about HK’s strict new vape ban- will I be forced to dispose of my vape when I arrive at customs? Or will I be allowed to keep it? I’ll only be bringing one battery and 2 small carts. From what I’ve read, their airport security is more concerned about the import and sales/distribution of nicotine juice. But if I only have this small amount on me for personal consumption (no big bottles of e-juice or big mods or anything flashy, just a pen vape with 2 carts) will they let me bring it? I would hate to have to toss my new vape away when I arrive in HK because I really need to bring it to the Philippines. I leave in 4 days, please give me some quick advice! Thank you ???
