Currently the Malaysian states of Penang, Kedah, Johor, Kelantan and Terengganu have banned e-cigarettes entirely.
Vaping laws and regulations in other parts of Malaysia are very confusing, as certain areas seem to currently allow vaping and have a thriving market and community, yet have either legally restricted it or made mention of restricting it in the very near future.
We strongly advise that you register for updates, as we will keep this page updated with any updates and/or changes made to the laws in Malaysia.
In Selangor you cannot vape in many public venues, including parks, shopping centers, government buildings like post offices and hospitals, any public place with air-conditioning (this includes vape stores), gas stations, and many others. Violators can be fined up to $2,300 (USD$537).
We advise that you abide by current smoking laws until further information is gathered from the embassy. (Available in the tab below)
Register for updates below as more information should be available shortly.
