    Default Traveling to Australia and New Zealand

    We will be traveling to Australia from the states and touring Australia and New Zealand which includes several airports. I would like to keep my EVODs and juices and battery charger in my checked luggage to avoid any questions with security (we are traveling with some people who would be upset if they knew we vaped). Would there be any problem with this as far as you know? I have been told that I must keep the batteries (ego C) in my carryon as they should not be checked. Is that true?

    We only vape in private so we would never do it in any airport or plane. But I do want our stuff to be available for hotel nights so we would be pretty upset if our stuff was taken out of our checked luggage.

    Would appreciate any help.

    You will have no problem. Yes, your batteries should be in your carry-on baggage, everything else wherever you like. Make sure you have everything you need for the duration of your trip, there are no brick-and-mortar shops in Australia. I'm not sure about NZ, but likely it's the same. To be honest ... I would chose different travel companions

    NZ is the same as AUS with what's allowed.

    No B&M's and it's illegal to sell juice with nic but fine to bring your own.

    There are actually a few B&M Shops around Australia now. Largest is Steam-ecigs located just out of the CBD in Sydney, they are awesome people and have a range of juice and kit for you to try. There is SoulBlu in Melbourne who are just north of the CBD (on the way to the airport) in Preston and there is Vapourtron located in South Yarra who both have juices available to try.

    I believe there is also one in Perth and one in Brisbane who have a physical premise but not sure who they are...

    Some helpful information here. I'll be traveling to Brisbane / Melbourne in a few months. Nice to know that I won't have to "smuggle" my liquid and batteries and mods.

    On a side note, I can't wait to stock up on Cherry Ripes and Chico Babies.

    One of our vendors here sells Cherry Ripe eJuice too you could grab some of that while you are here.. E Cigs & Accessories - Best Online Retailer in Australia - Vapeking

    Shoot a PM out when you are in Melbourne, nothing like an impoptu vape meet! I could rustle up a few locals too...
