As of a 2014 report on Kazakhstan by the World Health Organization there are currently no bans or regulations on e-cigarettes.
There are a few stores located around the country with quite a good selection situated in Almaty. Browse the store map to the right thoroughly before visiting any stores, as some provide a great range of quality devices and imported e-liquids, while others do not.
Although there are no known specific e-cigarette usage laws, we suggest that you at least abide by current smoking laws until further information is gathered from the embassy. (Available in the tab below)
Register for updates below as more information should be available shortly.
