Bhutan

            

Brief Overview

In 2004, Bhutan banned tobacco and tobacco products (including e-cigarettes) from being produced or sold in the country.

It is still currently legal to bring e-cigarette products into the country for your own personal consumption, although they are subject to import duties and must bear proof of taxation, display required health warnings, and cannot promote tobacco by means that are false, misleading, or likely to create an erroneous impression about their characteristics, health effects, or hazards (eg. descriptors such as “light” or “mild”).

Also, e-cigarette products are prohibited in both indoor and outdoor public places, and if used, are subject to fines and/or police action.
