Switzerland

               

Brief Overview

The sale and commercial importation of nicotine-containing e-cigarette products is prohibited in Switzerland, although non-nicotine products are legal throughout the country.

There are an abundance of stores in Zurich and Lausanne, but only a small number can be found in other parts of the country.

Although the sale and commercial importation of nicotine-containing products is prohibited, it is currently legal to import for personal use (up to 150mL), so you can bring nicotine e-liquid with you in your luggage or on your person.
