The Australian October 1st Nicotine "Ban"
Don't Worry: We've got the answers and you shouldn't panic.
Is nicotine being banned?
So what's actually happening?
As of October 1st, 2021, regulations on importing nicotine into Australia are changing, and Australian vapers will be required to have a valid medical prescription to legally access nicotine e-Liquids.
Technically, on the state level, most Australian vapers have always required a prescription to import and possess nicotine. From October 1, the Australian government is simply formalising this requirement on a national level.
This change is following a reclassification from the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) making nicotine e-liquids a Schedule 4 (prescription only) substance late last year.
