    There seems to be a lot of confusion from American vendors who some how think that e-cigs are banned in Australia or Nicotine is.
    This leads me to tell everyone how it works and what Australias current stance is on e-cigs and Nicotine.

    Nicotine is illegal to sell and supply WITHIN Australia. It's LEGAL to import it. There is no limit on how much mg nicotine you can import or quantity however if the purchase is over $1000 you're going to have to pay GST to customs for them to release the goods.

    Importing e-juice with nicotine is fine also.

    E-cigarettes cannot be sold IN australia with Nicotine but without nicotine is fine. Importing with ejuice is fine.

    so to sum it up: There is no semi-ban on ecigs in Australia and it's perfectly fine to import.

    To all the American vendors who are no longer shipping to Australia - tasty vapor etc. Your understanding is incorrect.

    Can you describe what kind of DIY kits these are abracadebra.
    Are they the DIY filling kits with bottles and syringes?

    You will find that most ALL suppliers in the states get their nicotine from China.
    It's a matter of finding the good stuff.

    I just recently discovered this from a vendor.

    Wizard Labs doesn't ship to Australia. There are other vendors who do.
    DIY kits can be imported into Australia.
    Most everything apart from Nicotine is available locally; you only need import the nic.

    So the claims of some vendors that 'our products are made with USA ingredients' (or something to that effect) are indeed false?

    Interesting...

    No. This is not correct. Place like RTS vapes sell US produced nic. Other vendors probably sell Chinese produced nic and I know a few sell rebranded Dekang and Hengseng juices for a massive mark up. But there are reliable, honest US vendors who do indeed sell US nic.

    No confusion. They just don't know where Australia is.

    So it's completely legal to sell them in stores or markets in Australia? You don't need any sort of a licence? I hope they don't take a cue from the USA, like the usually do. Sigh
