    New Vaper. Importing Question?

    First I would like to say I am a total newbie to vaping.
    I have recently ordered from the US the following
    1 x Halo G6 E-Cig with 12mg carts.
    1 x Halo Triton Starter Kit with their E Liquid 12mg Tobacco sample pack.
    1 x Green Smoke Ultimate Starter Kit including 18mg Tobacco carts.

    My question is will my packages clear customs as the e liquids and cartomisers contain nicotiine.
    Please understand I am a total noobie and have no idea of the laws in Aus.
    I do know however that it is illegal to supply e liquids and carts containing nicotine in Aus.
    Thats whats confusing me.

    Please help me this is my first post but I am sure to post a lot more in the future about all aspects of vaping.

    I hope this is not a total stupid question.

    Your gear will clear customs OK. It is illegal for you, or me, or anyone within Australia to supply or sell nicotine (to others) but it is not illegal for any of us within Australia to bring it in for personal use.

    And BTW, welcome to AVF

    you can find a lot of great nic mixed juice from nz asia usa and europe. a little research on the forums you'll see what everyones favourites are. my first set of juice was actually from the philippines, next best NZ then from fasttech witg marlboro flavour.

    Yes they will, it's for personal use so you are safe, it's when you import for sale it becomes a different matter.

    And there are no stupid questions, only stupid politicians.

    Hi Raziel
    when I started vaping over 2 years ago I had 2 shipments from smoke tip (2 starter kits and heaps of pre filled 16 mg cartomisers)
    Both were opened by customs and inspected and no problems getting to me
    I must admit I was very nervous at the time though and was waiting for the police to knock on my door
    Welcome here too

    Welcome and glad you have chosen vaping than continue to donate your hard earn cash to government and big tobacco.

    Pre-mixed Nic juice: up to 3 months of quantities for personal use. This is very subjective and I have (as many of vapers) bought 300-400 ml and they went through custom ok. As long as it is for your own use it isn't illegal.

    Blended PG/VG with Nic: Same principle applies.

    Lithium/Li-Ion batteries: I think the postal refuse to ship them now via air as they have been classified as dangerous goods. But you can easily find them via local vendors and local ebay sellers.

    Do watchout on vaping related sales thread as there are hardware giveaways from time to time. No nic juice can be given away (in public) as it is considered illegal to supply nic juice to someone other than yourself.

    Research before you buy: There are many clones out there and some are really crap. If you can afford, always buy genuine one. Youtube is a good channel to start with.

    Ask as many questions as you can: This is to ensure you don't waste too much money on things don't meet your expectation. People are helpful. No question is stupid question here. We were all newbie once.

    Ave Smoked: 15-20/Day for 22 years
    Spent on Smoke: $600/month when 1 pack = $18
