Disposable vapes are e-cigarette devices that can’t be recharged, or reused. And from March 1, 2024, other requirements will be introduced including:

  • a ban on the importation of all vapes (including rechargeable) without an import licence and permit
  • specific product requirements for imported vapes, with flavours limited to mint, menthol or tobacco.
