Travelling Restrictions with E-cigarettes

With increased security around flying, many people are unsure of current rules for taking their ecigarettes and e-liquid abroad.

Airlines are used to seeing electronic cigarettes these days and you should face no problems when flying abroad with them although they should be kept in your hand luggage and it may not be possible to use them onboard.

E-liquid can be packed in your suitcase, but it might not be wise in case of breakage or leaking.

The current restrictions for any liquid seem to be:

  • Each liquid you carry must be in its own container of no more than 100ml (3.4 ounces).
  • All liquids should be carried in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of up to 20cm x 20cm (8in x 8in) with a total capacity of up to a litre (approximately one quart).
  • You must be able to completely close the bag and be able to fit it in your hand baggage.
  • The bag of liquids must be taken out of other hand baggage to be screened separately.

It is therefore fine to travel with them, following the guidelines, but you must check the restrictions for use in the Country you are travelling to, especially outside of the EU.
