Macau

            

Brief Overview

E-cigarettes were added to Macau’s Tobacco Control Law on August 15, 2017, meaning the use of any e-cigarette product (both nicotine and non-nicotine) is now forbidden in workplaces, hotels, bars, casinos, shopping malls, public transportation and parks, among others.

It should be noted that while the use of electronic cigarettes outside the designated areas is not forbidden, its commercialization is not allowed in Macau. The sales ban addresses specific recommendations more recently issued by the World Health Organization, urging governments to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in public places and to forbid its sale.

The new law also revised some other aspects of Law 5/2011, including the provision that entities can now forbid smoking in open spaces which are managed by the same. Also, the fines applicable to people caught smoking in unauthorized areas were raised to MOP$1,500.00 (USD$186).

There used to be a small number of retail outlets in Macau but these appear to have now closed.
