Nicotine Vaping Devices (E-cigarettes) in Belize

There is currently no specific law regarding e-cigarettes – e-cigarettes are therefore legal to sell and use in Belize, and there is no tax on them at the moment. However, the National Drug Abuse Control Council Belize (NADCC) are (as of 2018) drafting a new Tobacco Control Act which may heavily regulate e-cigarette product sales, and possibly restrict public use, along with a substantial tax to be applied to the final sale price.
