Regulations on shipping electronic cigarettes, e-liquids and Juul pods internationally


  • Before shipping electronic cigarettes, puff pods and recharge cartridges, it is important to check whether they are legal in the pick-up and the destination country. Many countries have followed the US ban regarding shipping such products.
  • Before shipping Juul pods and e-cigarettes internationally, remember that lithium batteries exceeding the specifications below cannot be transported by air.

Multi-cell batteries: No more than 4 cells, ≤ 100Wh


  • Check the destination country’s regulations regarding sending vape and puff products in the mail or by courier. Many countries classify them as tobacco products and not as electronic devices.

How much vape juice can one ship in the mail?

E-liquid international shipping has become quite challenging after the Vape Ban. Thus, senders can only mail them at their own risk. When shipping nicotine-free e-liquids through the mail internationally, their volume must not exceed 1L. The bottles must be securely closed and placed in leak-proof packaging.

Courier companies prohibit sending liquids, including vape juice because any leakage will cause damage not only to the package itself but also to other shipments.


FAQ on mailing electronic cigarettes, vape juice
and Juul pods in the mail or by courier

Can I ship e-cigarettes with every courier company?
It is important to note that not all courier companies will ship electronic cigarettes internationally. For example, DHL, TNT and UPS will not ship packages that contain vape juice or electronic devices for vaping within the content. Each courier has specific rules and requirements for different shipments and services, so we recommend checking this further with the designated courier for your route. When booking Express or Regular plus shipping services, please make sure not to include these items as the courier will refuse to collect the parcel. If you need further assistance, you can reach us by chat, phone or email before shipping to discuss your options further.
Can I send e-cigarettes in the mail?
In countries where electronic cigarettes and other vaping products are considered Tobacco Products, shipping electronic cigarettes through the mail or via courier services can only be conducted by authorised senders, such as licensed companies. In accordance with the shipping regulations, in such countries, individuals can neither ship e-cigarettes by post nor by courier. It is recommended to check relevant local regulations both in the pick-up and the destination countries before sending vapes in the mail.
What is the best way to pack and ship e-cigarettes?
The optimal packaging for shipping electronic cigarettes and all other similar items is the original box of the device. This type of packaging has been tailor-made for specific product models and can offer the best protection during transit.
