UPDATE: AUSTRALIA OCTOBER 1ST, 2021 - PRESCRIPTION REQUIREMENTS
The Long Story Short
IS NICOTINE BEING BANNED?
No. However you do need a prescription!
SO WHAT’S HAPPENED?
Late last year the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) reclassified Nicotine e-liquids as a schedule 4 (prescription only) substance. The Australian Government on October 1st is simply formalising this requirement and now Australian vapers will be required to have a valid medical
prescription under the PIS (personal importation scheme) to legally access nicotine containing. products.
CAN I STILL “LEGALLY” IMPORT & USE NICOTINE IN AUSTRALIA?
Yes, as long as you have a valid medical prescription from October 1st.
WILL SVS CONTINUE SHIPPING TO AUSTRALIA?
Yes we will continue shipping through our international site as usual.
We advise customers to please be aware of the national law and regulations.
WHERE CAN I GET A PRESCRIPTION FROM?
Prescriptions can be done online at Quit Clinics, Medical Nicotine and My Nicotine.

Athra has been really busy and compiled a list of doctors per state who can help you get your prescription, whether in person or telehealth consultations (phone or video call) are available Australia-wide. Once you have obtained your prescription you can order as normal.
AFTER I PLACE MY ORDER
We will ship your order, once it reaches the Australian boarder, the ABF (Australian Boarder Forced) may inspect your order to check for your prescription and you may be contacted you. If you are contacted please provide your script so your order can clear customs.
Super Vape Store can not be held responsible for any orders that are seized or destroyed by the ABF and is not able to refund or reimburse you if this happens, so please make sure you have your script ready!*
We also advise any international buyers to be aware of your Local Laws & Regulations concerning importing nicotine goods and follow them.
