Available information on the legality of sales of e-cigarettes in Venezuela is ambiguous. Sources report that to be imported, e-cigarettes need to be categorised as either tobacco, medicinal or consumer products. If categorised as tobacco or as a derivative product, e-cigarettes are regulated by the Tobacco Control Laws. As such they cannot be sold to minors, advertised and promoted, or used in enclosed public spaces or on transport. However, if e-cigarettes are categorised as a consumer or medicinal product, they have to have been extensively clinically trialled before being sold, distributed or used. As none have been approved so far, sales are illegal and an alert to this effect has been issued by the Venezuelan Ministry of Health. It is not clear from our sources if this means all sales are illegal, or just those where e-cigarettes are categorised as consumer/medicinal products. There is no information about e-cigarette vaping
