    Really? Correct me if I'm wrong but it was my understanding that the importation of e-cig liquids containing Nicotine was banned but it was being allowed through for personal use. This was also done with snuff many years ago (Copenhagen, Skoal etc) out of the U.S. until they clamped down on the importation and physically stopped the items at the port of entry.

    It is illegal to sell in australia, there is "currently" no law that forbids the importation of liquids unless you were importing them to sell. Here is a list of the countries that have banned it as flollows

    Legal status by region

    Because of the relative novelty of the technology and the possible relationship to tobacco laws and medical drug policies, electronic cigarette legislation and public health investigations are currently pending in many countries.

    * In Australia, the sale of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine is illegal.[20][21]
    * In Brazil electronic cigarettes sales, importation or advertisement of any kind are forbidden. Anvisa, the Brazilian health and sanitation federal agency, found the current health safety assessments about e-cigarettes not to be yet satisfactory to make the product eligible to be approved for commercialization.[22]
    * In Canada, as of March 2009, imports, sales, and advertising are banned. In March 2009, Health Canada also advised Canadians not to purchase or use any electronic smoking products. Health Canada cited the Food and Drugs Act, stating that electronic smoking products containing nicotine require market authorization before they can be imported, marketed, or sold. No market authorization has been granted for any electronic smoking product.[18]
    * In Denmark, the Danish Medicines Agency classifies electronic cigarettes containing nicotine as medicinal products. Thus, authorization is required from the retailer before the product may be marketed and sold. The agency has clarified, however, that electronic cigarettes that do not administer nicotine to the user, and are not otherwise used for the prevention or treatment of disease, are not considered medicinal devices.[23] The use of electronic cigarettes has not been prohibited in Copenhagen Airport, but at least one airline (Scandinavian Airlines) has decided to ban their use onboard flights.[24]
    * In Netherlands, use and sale of electronic cigarettes is allowed, but advertising is forbidden pending European Union legislation.[25]
    * In New Zealand, the Ministry of Health has ruled that the Ruyan e-cigarette falls under the requirements of the Medicines Act, and cannot be sold except as a registered medicine.[2]
    * In Panama, importation, distribution and sale has been prohibited since June 2009. The Ministry of Health cites the FDA findings as their reason for the ban.[26]
    * In Singapore, the sale and import of electronic cigarettes, even for personal consumption, is illegal.[27]
    * In United Kingdom, use and sale of electronic cigarettes is currently unrestricted, although the MHRA has proposed bringing all nicotine products except tobacco within the medicines licensing regime.[28]
