Accessing vaping prescriptions in Tasmania
As of 1st October 2021, Vaping laws have changed in Tasmania and throughout Australia, requiring you to have a prescription to legally vape nicotine-containing products.
Whether you live in Hobart, Launceston or anywhere else throughout Tasmania you can access legal nicotine vaping prescribed by your GP or a medical service like Prescription Vape.
Is vaping nicotine legal in Tasmania?
Nicotine vaping is legal in Tasmania and Australia with a prescription from a GP or medical service provider. Vapers generally have to adhere to the same regulations as smoking in terms of where they can vape in the community.
Before laws changed, many individuals were ordering vape devices and e-liquids from international retailers. Now it is required that you have a prescription for nicotine e-liquid when ordering online.
If you choose to order nicotine vape liquid from online suppliers into Tasmania or anywhere in Australia you should request a copy of your prescription to be included in the package to avoid any penalties, fines or delays at customs.

Can vaping help me quit smoking?
Research is still emerging on the long term safety of vaping, but so far it seems vaping can be just as effective if not considerably more effective than other methods of quitting tobacco. Vaping reduces the intake of harmful combustion products from smoking and at the moment is recommended as second-line therapy for those wanting to quit tobacco.
