Can you vape in Indonesia?

Vaping in Indonesia Status: Permitted

Indonesia’s existing regulation on vaping is far from adequate. Since 2017, Indonesia’s Trade Ministry has required e-cigarette products to be authorised by the country’s National Drug and Food Agency (BPOM) and Health Ministry before being marketed. Limit access to e-cigarettes for youth and non-smokers. What you need to know: Vaping is permitted in Indonesia, however, as of the 1st July 2018, the government will be imposing a 57% excise tax on all e-liquids containing traces of tobacco. There are approximately 4000 vape shops and 300 e-liquid manufacturers in the country so getting supplies, even if they do cost a little more from July 2018, shouldn’t pose too many problems.
