Armenia

               

Brief Overview

There are currently no bans or regulations on e-cigarettes, although the Government of Armenia plans to ban the use of vapor products very shortly, according to an Armenpress report.  We highly suggest registering for updates below.

The government imposed a ban on smoking in public places in 2004, but the measure is weakly enforced.

As vaping is seen negatively by the Armenian Government, we suggest that you at least abide by current smoking laws until further information is gathered from the embassy. (Available in the tab below)
