The maximum allowable quantity is:
2 vapes in total (whether disposable or reusable),
20 vape accessories (including cartridges, capsules or pods), and
200mL of vape substance in liquid form.
Vapes that contain substances that are controlled drugs under regulation 5 of the PI Regulations, such as cannabis oil, are not counted in the above limits. These products remain subject to the existing traveller’s exemption.
