Slovakia

               

Brief Overview

E-cigarettes are currently legal in Slovakia, but their use is prohibited wherever smoking is restricted. Currently there is only a partial ban on smoking in public places, so ensure you check with each venue before using your e-cigarette.

In May 2017, Slovakia introduced a specific tax of €73.90 (USD$88) per kg of “smokeless tobacco”, which was a new category created for e-liquid. Basically, this means that a 10mL bottle of e-liquid will be subject to approximately €0.73 (USD$0.88) of additional tax, which may prompt higher prices with some retailers.

Slovakia 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.
