As of a 2014 country report on Laos by the World Health Organization there are currently no bans or regulations on e-cigarettes.
Some e-cigarette products can be found in Vientiane usually alongside other products in small retail stores, along with some products being sold at night markets. These may or may not be of good quality, so we suggest bringing your own devices and e-liquids with you.
Although there are no 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)
