Are nicotine vapes legal in Queensland?

In Brisbane, Queensland and throughout Australia vaping is only legal if you have a prescription from your doctor. Purchasing illicit under the counter nicotine vapes from tobacco stores or some online sources poses health risks as many products don’t meet government-set safety and quality standards.

Ordering nicotine vape liquid from online marketplaces is only legal if you have a prescription. If you choose to order vape products from international suppliers into Queensland it is recommended you request a copy of your prescription to be included in the package to avoid any penalties or fines. 

To avoid any penalties, fines or uncertainty about the safety of your vape, engaging with  Prescription Vape or your doctor will ensure you receive a vape device and e-liquid that meets Australian standards.
