Prescriptions

WHERE CAN I GET A PRESCRIPTION FROM?

You can use online services such as QuitRX.com.au,ChronicDoctors.com.au, QuitClinics.com,TheNicotineClinic.comor MyNicotine.com.au to help vapers and those transitioning from smoking to access valid prescriptions for their nicotine needs and maintain their harm reduction strategy.

More information about the Australian Government | Department of Health: Personal Importation Scheme.

Alternatively, ATHRAhas created a handy list of other Australian doctors who can possibly assist you with a nicotine prescription.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I PLACE AN ORDER AFTER OCT 1 2021 WITHOUT UPLOADING A PRESCRIPTION AT CHECKOUT?

We will be running business as usual, and will dispatch all orders (whether a prescription is uploaded or not) as normal, at the customer's own risk. Please be aware of your national legal requirements.

Prescriptions cannot be backdated and can only be dated from the date of consultation. We recommend getting a prescription as soon as possible to make sure you are covered.

A worst-case scenario may be that incoming vape packages will be held by customs officers in Australia, who will then contact you to provide a valid prescription (under the personal importation scheme) for your parcel to be released. If you do not have a valid prescription you may be open to your parcel being destroyed and/or penalties under Australian law, buyer beware.

More information from the TGA.

PURCHASE LIMITS BEFORE OCTOBER 1ST

At this stage, we are not setting any limits on purchase quantities. Please keep in mind that orders over $1000 AUD are potentially subject to extra scrutiny at the border - as such, if you require more than $1000 AUD worth of products, we recommend spacing multiple, smaller orders over a few weeks.

PURCHASE LIMITS AFTER OCTOBER 1ST

According to the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration you will only be able to order a three-month supply of your prescribed nicotine, with the dosage outlined in your doctor's prescription.

Vapoureyes does not enforce these limits/order quantities.

Requirements that apply

Nicotine vaping products that are imported via the Personal Importation Scheme must meet the Ingredients requirements in TGO 110, namely:

  • the prohibitions on products containing active ingredients other than nicotine and specified substances with known health risks associated with inhalation being added as ingredients to these products
  • the 100 mg/mL limit on the nicotine base form concentration (for nicotine base products) or equivalent base form concentration (for nicotine salt products), and
  • the requirement for nicotine (base form, salt form and/or equivalent base form) concentration or content to be within +/- 10% of that stated on the label or in any information sheet provided with the product. As outlined below, the TGO 110 labelling requirements (including the nicotine concentration labelling requirements) do not apply to products imported via the Personal Importation Scheme. However, because this is an ingredient requirement (not a labelling requirement), it will still apply to products imported via the Personal Importation Scheme if they are labelled with, or come with an information sheet that includes, a statement of nicotine (base form, salt form and/or equivalent base form) concentration or content.

Australian Border Force officials can stop an import at the Australian border if they suspect it is an unlawful import.
