New Zealand / New Zealand New Zealand

New Zealand is very progressive in all aspects of electronic cigarette vape, and people over 18 years old can use or buy vape kits. In 2017, the New Zealand Ministry of Health approved e-cigarettes and classified them as 'harm reduction and smoking cessation tools'.


Among the countries, the most progressive may be the United Kingdom, which implemented regulations in 2015 that the sale of e-cigarettes to minors must be over 18 years old.

Retailers can be fined £2,500 (approximately NT$100,000) if they sell e-cigarette vape devices to people under the age of 18.

If you're an adult, you can vape almost anywhere, and you can find vape vape shops in almost every city across the country.

United States

The laws vary from state to state in the United States, and the age limit ranges from '18 years and over' to '21 years and over'.

For example, if you want to buy e-cigarettes in Alaska, you must be at least 19 years old, but in Oregon, you must be 21.

Federal law allows vaping for those over 18, but some states have raised legal limits.


The federal government of Canada has not imposed any restrictions on the use and sale of e-cigarettes.

However, at the municipal level, there are age restrictions for those over 18 or under 19, and there are additional legal restrictions on use.

For example, if you are in Ontario, you must be at least 19 years old, but if you are in Manitoba, you must be at least 18 years old. There is also such a place in Calgary, Alberta. Smoking has been completely banned since 2015.

European Union

EU countries have different laws and restrictions on the use of e-cigarettes/smoking, but the mainstream age is over 18 years old.

Despite the EU's freedom to regulate e-cigarettes, the taxation is not so friendly. Italy passed a tax law in 2017 that makes vaping more expensive than smoking. Croatia does not allow vaping in enclosed public areas.

China Mainland

China invented e-cigarettes and currently produces 90% of the products there. Restrictions vary by region, but the standard age limit is 18+.

Article 14 of the Control Act stipulates that importation is prohibited.

In order to ensure the health and safety of the public, the Food and Drug Administration of the Ministry of Health and Welfare has not yet approved the import of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine, and the customs are not allowed to release them directly.

If e-liquid products 'do not contain' nicotine, according to the letter from the National Health Administration, e-liquid needs to be used together with e-cigarette carriers, which is an important part of e-cigarettes, and still falls within the scope of Article 14 of the same law. , no person shall import such articles.

According to the current regulations, it is simply as follows:

Passengers are not allowed to bring e-cigarette products into the country, and the customs cannot release them if they carry a small amount for their own use.
