If you are caught vaping there you may be arrested and charged by the local authorities.

Many African countries (especially Egypt) have very strict tobacco and vaping laws. Besides Africa and Asia, it's well known that the governments of Lebanon, Turkey, and several South American countries have banned their citizens from vaping in public.

Countries Where Vaping is Allowed

Now that you know which places to avoid, here are some countries where you can freely vape without any consequences. All of the countries mentioned below allow vaping and may even have a more lenient stance towards vaping than the United States.


England is one of the most vape friendly places in Europe. This means you can easily enjoy a leisurely vape session while eating a delicious meal of fish and chips during your vacation.

England is very supportive of the vaping industry and believes it can help patients transition from smoking cigarettes. The government is supportive because the National Health Service of England recently funded different studies that compared the health effects of vaping to cigarettes. The extensive research revealed that vaping is 95 percent less harmful than smoking cigarettes and using other tobacco products. Now there are countless vaping stores in the country so you will never have to worry about running out of e-juice and other vaping supplies.


If Russia has always been on your bucket list, great news! The country is famous for embracing tobacco and vaping products. Smoking is a big part of their culture, so when vaping was recently introduced within the last decade or so, many Russians fell in love with vaping.

Since Russia's federal government is very open-minded when it comes to vaping, you can freely vape in public and inside business establishments. As vaping increases in popularity, more vape shops will continue to open up across Russia.


Another country that is extremely vape-friendly is Germany. It's not uncommon to see vaping clouds when you are walking around exploring the European country as a tourist. Germany's laws are very similar to those in the United States since people can only use and access vaping products when they are 18 years of age or older. Their relaxed laws mean you can vape in confidence while visiting the country.


Have you ever daydreamed about eating traditional Swedish food while enjoying your favorite dessert e-liquid? If so, you should seriously consider booking a flight to Sweden. The beautiful country is another safe haven for people who love to vape.

You're also allowed to bring vape products with you so you won't have to worry about customs stopping you once you arrive and trying to throw it away if the trash.


The great Balkan nation of Bulgaria is another safe haven for vapers. The government has a progressive stance on vaping so there are have fewer restrictions when it comes to buying, selling or using vape supplies.
