Thailand vape ban: Travellers unaware they could face up to 10 years in prison for using e-cigarettes

A travel agent is urging others to tell their customers not to vape in Thailand as they could face up to 10 years in prison.

In November 2014, Thailand approved legislation outlawing the import of e-cigarettes into the country. This has since been expanded to the export as well as sale of e-smoking devices and equipment.

Although there are reports of the police confiscating, E-cigarettes used in public places , we could not find details of anyone being arrested or fined.  As with so much in this part of the world, implementing the law is down to the discretion of each individual police officer and in some cases the need to help in their own retirement planning………

The law on Importing E-cigarettes

The importation, sale and production for sale of E-cigarettes, is also illegal with offenders liable to 10 year sentences for production and sale and a fine of five times the value of the goods or both. This law has been on the statute since December 2014.

Buying E-cigarettes in Thailand

To confuse the situation further, both E-cigarettes and their e-liquids are readily available within the country. A quick Google search shows numerous places and sites where you can get your fix.
