E-Liquids in Australia

We've noticed a big increase in customers and traffic from Australia in recent months, some of our most regular customers are now from "Down Under" - so we thought we'd share a few facts with you - in particular if you are in Australia and thinking about giving up cigarettes or trying our e-liquids.

In order to purchase e-liquid products with nicotine, you must order them from outside the country and have them imported. The law in Australia states it is legal to import a 3 month supply of e-liquid nicotine for personal use. We do however understand Queensland State law prohibits nicotine use, or import.

But what is considered a 3 month supply? That answer is still unclear, so use good personal judgement when ordering.  Keep your order under $1,000 AUD declared value (before any discount or shipping) to avoid customs fees.

We always ship our International orders as tracked and signed for to avoid any issues, and so far the £15 we charge (which is actually less than we have to pay Royal Mail) seems to be a fair price.
