Austria

               

Brief Overview

While e-cigarettes are currently legal in Austria, there are restrictions on the use of them in public places where tobacco is also prohibited.

A total smoking ban (including vaping) in all public places will come into effect from May 2018. We highly recommend registering for updates as we will be updating this page with any new laws and regulations as soon as they come into practice.

Austria abides by the EU TPD, and as such, nicotine content of e-liquid must be less than or equal to 20mg/mL, single use e-cigarettes as well as e-cigarette tanks must not exceed 2mL, and volume of refill bottles must not exceed 10mL.
