    Saudi Arabia has banned the sale of e cigs according to:
    E Cigarettes | Electronic Cigarette | Electronic Cigarettes | Smoking Laws by Country

    Saudi Arabia wants to ban e-cigarettes
    Though the list of countries that have supposedly banned e cigarettes is a bit incorrect.

    Caution when vaping in Saudi Arabia!

    Sites either seem to be saying sale is banned, or that e cigs are banned. Not sure what to believe as I'm certain most writers are just looking at someone else's site and not doing any independent research.

    And here is one discussing where to buy vape supplies in Riyadh:

    No problem, Flo. I'd think you should be ok vaping in Saudi Arabia as long as you keep it as private as possible and don't bring anything you couldn't bear to lose. But in many parts of the middle east various of our wicked western habits are best kept behind closed doors.

    How long would you be going for?

    Hey flo, do yourself a BIG favour and decline the trip to Saudi. Bin there and trust me you would not like it.

    You mentioned your looks and temperament and you are spot on.
    Because I trust no-one Who tells me FACTS with no proof

    just an odd thought call the embassy? saying firstly that you are asking to be respectful of their customs and culture maybe they might be able to assist?
    travel agents mightn't know. If its work maybe ask a colleague or whoever your staying with?
