Vaping In Argentina?

#1
Is it possible to buy electronic cigarette paraphernalia and e-liquids containing nicotine in Argentina? Also, does anyone know if it is ok to bring my own batteries, atomisers and e-liquids in through Ezeiza?

Peace

You can buy it online, but the variety of equipment is rather small. If you bring your own atomizer, make sure to bring enough resistances as you might not get the ones you need here. Bringing it in via EZE is no problem (assuming you don't have liters of liquid with you).

At the moment t is illegal to import, advertise and sell vaping products in this country. (This country produces a large quantity of tobacco, which may have something to do with it. There is a suggestion that it may be legalised this year, but don't hold your breath.) It is not illegal to vape, however, or to have vaping equipment and liquids in one's possession. Tourists may bring their own equipment and liquids in with them - I don't think there is even a question about this on the customs form.

Like many things in this country there is a 'parallel market' in vaping products. You don't have to look far to find one on-line. Mostly these places will take your order on-line and deliver by moto - you pay cash on delivery.

Good luck

Good luck in giving up smoking in Argentina, where cigarettes are cheap and smoking is socially accepted (if not encouraged)!
Yes cigarettes are about 75% cheaper.....it's one of the few joys of living here compared to the UK.

However I do enjoy a pipe now and again which doesn't come cheap. The inexpensive locally produced pipe tobacco is like cow dung and imported blends expensive.

I vape daily. I've never been questioned about any parts pieces or batteries not even liquids when going thru EZE. When I trek back to states I stock up on everything possible and I have even purchased liquid here from marcado libre when I wasn't home to use my own liquid.
