    How’s that for hypocritel approach, so easy to ban e-cigarettes yet they can’t curb or ban the illegal Rhino horn trade taking place right under the noses. Not to mention the human trafficking that the east is plagued with.

    Kids that start vaping is not the vaping industries problem, so when are they banning teenage - sex, smoking, drugs and general teenager stupidity that comes with the territory and it’s a part of growing up that everyone has to do.

    Bunch of knobs elected into power trying to tell everyone how to live their lives, like the government has ever done anything for me personally. Let’s make the normal tax paying law obeying citizens life difficult, nice!

    Guess I’ll just take some Weed with then, at least that’s legal these days.

    And don’t even get me started on Paper Straws :-D

    I transit through HK and Istanbul on a regular basis and have not been stopped ... yet. I usually carry one mod and 30mls of liquid in my hand luggage and the rest in my check in baggage.

    I usually check my baggage through to my final destination (eg. JHB to UB via HK or IST)

    https://www.philstar.com/headlines/2019/07/03/1931632/doh-prohibits-e-cigarettes-vapes-public-places

    3 JULY 2019

    The Department of Health (DOH) has prohibited smoking of electronic cigarettes and vapes in public places.

    Based on Administrative Order 2019-0007 signed by Health Secretary Francisco Duque III on June 14, the public smoking ban now covers Electronic Nicotine and Non-Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS).

    “Use of vapes and e-cigarettes will be banned in places where smoking is prohibited,” Duque said.

    [...]

    The ban on vapes and e-cigarettes will follow the same guidelines for designated smoking areas under Section 4 of Executive Order 26... [which] prohibits smoking of cigarettes and other tobacco products in public areas including schools, workplaces, government facilities, churches, hospitals, transport terminals, markets, parks and resorts.

    Smoking is allowed in designated areas and open spaces with proper ventilation.

    Duque said the AO provides that establishments engaged in the manufacture, distribution, importation, exportation, sale including online and transfer of ENDS products must first secure a license to operate from the Food and Drug Administration.

    Retail sales of nicotine shots and concentrates are also prohibited. Containers of these smoking devices must also have appropriate health warnings.

    India - Confiscation of e-cigarettes at airports
    https://economictimes.indiatimes.co...-allows-personal-use/articleshow/73494367.cms

    21 Jan. 2020

    "Despite the new e-cigarette prohibition law excluding personal use, e-cigarette users are reporting seizures of their devices at airports across the country after the civil aviation
    ministry issued an ambiguous circular, according to the Association of Vapers India.

    On January 10, the civil aviation ministry issued a notice banning transport of e-cigarettes at Indian airports and aircraft citing the E-cigarette Prohibition Bill passed in Parliament in December 2019. This has led to confiscation of vaping devices from travellers passing through Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Delhi and Bhavnagar airports …"

    Aw that's bad news! If I had to go for 3 months without vaping I'd go into a rapid decline.

    I read on "Vapetrotter" that England is very vape friendly, even allowed to vape in public areas including indoors... Sounds to good to be true though??

    When in May are you going? Maybe we can have a beer together? I am departing 15/05/2020 via British Airways and arriving back on 30/05/2020

    Mate, vaping is mainstream in UK, you should have no issues. Heathrow Terminal 5 used to allow vaping but can't confirm that is still the case. Enjoy your trip.

    Slight change of topic, but anybody been through Dubai recently? In transit end of Feb and had a bad experience there some years ago, although I believe things are now more relaxed.

    HOT TIP: Whichever country you're going to or passing through, just make sure that your documents are in order.
