Electronic cigarettes are illegal in Thailand

Enjoy your Thailand holiday, but please leave the electronic cigarettes at home. They’re illegal here.

Travellers coming to Thailand should be aware that electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes areillegal in the kingdom.

Anyone found breaking this law by using an electronic cigarette – or vaping – in Thailand could be arrested and face jail time, or a fine several times the value of the illegal item(s).

This applies both to foreigners and Thais.

There have been recent incidents of foreign travellers who were unaware of the ban facing an on-the-spot fine or being arrested.

The ban was introduced in 2014 by the Thai Government for health reasons and that electronic cigarettes were luring young people into smoking.

Thus, travellers coming to Thailand are advised not to bring any electronic cigarettes with them, nor any item or equipment associated with e-cigarettes; such as, the liquid used in the device.

Likewise, travel agents or tour operators selling Thailand as a destination should make sure their clients are aware of the ban in place on electronic cigarettes.
