Malta

               

Brief Overview

E-cigarettes are currently legal in Malta.

Vaping is relatively common in Malta, but there has been confusion about whether it’s banned in public places. Some health groups have claimed that they are but, in 2015, a woman who had been fined €233 for vaping in an enclosed place had her conviction overturned on appeal. The court confirmed that the smoking ban only applies to tobacco products, not e-cigarettes.

As of now, we have listed both public and indoor vaping as restricted, as even though it may technically be legal you may still end up with a substantial fine that you would need to appeal.

Malta abides by the EU TPD, and as such, nicotine content of e-liquid must be less than or equal to 20mg/mL, single use e-cigarettes as well as e-cigarette tanks must not exceed 2mL, and volume of refill bottles must not exceed 10mL.
