Everybody already knows that vaping is banned in most confined public spaces in the world like Airplanes and Train Cars, but now there's entire countries that are banning Electronic Cigarette devices. Do you know just how severe the fines and penalties can be?
Be careful if you're traveling to Singapore, as of February 1st 2018 the purchasing and usage of vaporizers was banned country-wide. They even went so far as to classify that buying a vaporizer online and shipping it to Singapore for personal use counts as an illegal import. That means if you're caught buying vape supplies online you could face up to a $10,000 fine and/or up to six months in jail for a first offense!
In America the laws are a bit more lax, unless you're on an airplane of course. If you have vaped or attempted to vape on an airplane you can be barred from flying with that Airline or any Airline for the rest of your life! The fines for vaping on an airplane can rack up to tens of thousands of dollars and depending on the severity, you could even be imprisoned!

Out of all the countries we've researched, Thailand is by far the least vape friendly. In Thailand, vaping or even owning an electronic cigarette is completely illegal. Arriving there with your vape kit and E-Liquid could lead to it being confiscated if you're lucky. If you're not lucky, in addition to a $2,000 fine, you could face up to 10 years of prison time!

Several British Nationals have already been arrested for possession of vaporizers so I wouldn't recommending pushing your luck with the local Thai police force.
Remember to always check first and make sure vaping is legal in the place you're visiting before you travel out of country!
