E-cigarettes are currently legal in Norway since the implementation of the EU TPD, although certain existing laws still make the e-cigarette situation confusing.
An older, existing law makes it illegal to sell nicotine-containing e-cigarette products, although nicotine-containing e-cigarette products are listed under the TPD regulations explaining their new legality. Nicotine-containing products are not listed on Norwegian online stores, so the TPD regulations may not be overriding this existing law.
It is currently illegal to import any e-cigarette products without prior approval from the Norwegian Medicines Agency, and this includes bringing any e-cigarette products with you in your luggage or on your person. The only exception to this if if you are a Norwegian resident with a current doctor’s certificate explaining your need for nicotine replacement.
Norway 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.
