Premium Vape can now offer shipping to Canada, so you can import e-liquid, vape pods and disposable vapes, shipped from our NZ warehouse.
We are pleased to announce that DHL – our preferred shipping partner – has rescinded its restrictions on shipping vaping products to Canada, paving the way for you to import e-liquid, vape pods and disposable vapes and have them shipped from our New Zealand warehouse to your door.
Importing vape gear into Canada is a somewhat complicated process, but we’re going to make it as easy as possible by answering all of your questions here. Before we get into the specifics of Canada’s regulations for vaping imports, though, let’s discuss some of the other questions that might be on your mind. For starters, why would you want to import vape gear when Canada already has a vast network or local and online vape shops?
Why Would I Want to Import Vape Gear into Canada?
The reason why having the ability to import vaping products into Canada from abroad should interest you is because every vaping product sold in Canada has a strict limit on nicotine strength and can’t have a nicotine concentration higher than 20 mg/ml. That particular limitation, however, doesn’t apply when you import e-liquid, disposable vapes and vape pods into Canada from overseas. Although there is a limit on nicotine strength for personal imports, it’s set at a much higher strength of 66 mg/ml. There are virtually no consumer vaping products in the world – and none at all here at Premium Vape – with that much nicotine, so you have an extremely wide array of products from which to choose.
Many people are able to switch fully from smoking to vaping using lower-nicotine e-liquids – and if that’s true for you, you can continue buying your vape gear from local vape shops and will probably be completely happy doing so. Some people, however, find that they need a bit more nicotine in order to keep completely away from cigarettes. If that’s the case for you, your best option is to import your vape gear into Canada.
Why Would I Want to Import Vape Gear from Premium Vape?
Now that we’ve established the value of importing vape gear into Canada instead of buying it from a local vape shop, let’s answer the next question that’s probably on your mind: Why would you want to buy from Premium Vape when you could buy from a company a little closer to home?
The first reason why Premium Vape is the best online vape store for Canadian imports is because exporting vape gear around the world is already a major part of what we do here. We are well versed in all relevant international vaping regulations and can help to make sure that your vape gear arrives safely at your door with no unnecessary fees or customs delays.
The other reason why we think you’ll love shopping at Premium Vape is because we carry a unique selection of vaping products sourced from around the world, including authentic STLTH®, Puff™ Bars and JUUL® pods from every major market including the United States and the United Kingdom. You won’t find a product assortment quite like ours anywhere else.
What Are the Restrictions when Importing Vape Gear into Canada?
When you import vape gear into Canada, you’ll need to abide by three restrictions.
- You can import vaping products for your own personal use only – not for resale. Although it’s wise to buy vape gear in bulk to save money, you should not import more goods than you can reasonably expect to use yourself.
- The products must have nicotine strengths below 66 mg/ml. All of the products sold by Premium Vape have strengths below 66 mg/ml.
- The products can’t make any health claims on their packaging. For instance, a product’s packaging can’t state that the product will help you quit smoking or that the product is healthier than smoking. None of the products available from Premium Vape are sold or marketed with health claims.
Is There a Limit to How Much Vape Gear I Can Import?
No. As long as you’re importing for your own personal use, there is no limit on how much vape gear you can import into Canada.
How Much Does It Cost to Import Vape Gear into Canada?
One of the things we love about having DHL as our shipping partner is that they operate as a customs broker and will handle the customs clearance process when bringing your vape gear into Canada. DHL does this for a fee of $15.00 CAD, which is far less than what most customs brokers charge. This service makes the process of importing vape gear into Canada easier because it eliminates the need to go through the customs clearance process on your own. In addition, you’ll also need to pay an import duty of 5 percent. These fees will be due when your package is delivered.
