Nicotine in Australia

Nicotine in Australia

In Australia nicotine is classed as a Schedule 7 substance (a dangerous poison). The scheduling is part of the national classification system which controls how medicines and poisons are made available to the public. It is overseen by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). 


You are able to order and purchase e-cigarette and e-liquid products that contain nicotine from offshore suppliers. Under the Personal Importation Scheme importing products containing nicotine liquid is legal for personal therapeutic use.

Be sure you comply with the following TGA requirements when deciding to import products containing nicotine.

Requirements under Personal Importation Scheme:

  • As nicotine is listed under Poison Standard, the importer should possess a prescription from a registered medical practitioner.
  • The products can be imported for the therapeutic use of the importers or their immediate family.
  • The amount of nicotine e liquid Australia imported should not be more than 3-month supply. The product should not contain any substance prohibited under Customs Act. (Nicotine is not prohibited under this act)
  • Nicotine e-liquids imported in a 12 month period should not exceed 15-month supply.

Vaped out strongly suggests for purchasing nicotine.

We also recommend a 100mg 100% PG blend .  For mixing please refer to online forums as it is illegal for Vaped out to assist in the mixing of nicotine. 

**Please check local state law before importing nicotine e-liquid to Australia. Vaped out is not responsible for any penalties you may be charged while ordering nicotine**
