Big changes to vaping rules set to kick in next year as liquid nicotine moves to prescription list

Australians will need a doctor’s prescription to import liquid nicotine from October next year.

The federal government’s vaping crackdown aims to stop young people from taking up the habit.

Health Minister Greg Hunt says the importation of liquid nicotine will require a doctor’s sign off from October 1, 2021.

The sale of e-cigarettes containing nicotine is currently illegal across the country.

It’s also illegal to possess them without a medical prescription, except in South Australia.
