Thailand Vaping Ban: Travellers unaware could face awful consequences.

A manager in a travel agency is trying to urge all travel agents to pass an information “Vaping is illegal” to their customers in Thailand as unknowing travelers could be sent to 10 ten years or less in prison. An arrest has already been made on some tourist for having in possession of electronic cigarettes. The ban on vaping has been enacted in the South East Asian country since 2014. However, many who reside in the tourism industry are still not aware of it. Pat Waterton, who happens to be Langley Travel manager, was a member until her nephew was caught in Thailand with an e-cig which they both luckily pass through the trial moment by paying a degree amount of fine when threatened with imprisonment.

I will definitely say it now if I’m betraying Thailand. Every agent should. Things that are liable to ruin a holiday should be made known to people because Thailand has gained more popularity.” said Waterton.

“If convicted with any of these confiscated items, you could be imprisoned for 10 years or thereabouts, or you could be fined.”

UK Foreign Office

Placing a ban on the importation and exportation of vaping products is a motion that has been pushed since November 2014. As a matter of fact, an instruction has been passed by the Foreign Office website to all travelers, not to come to Thailand with such devices. “If convicted with any of these confiscated items, you could be imprisoned for 10 years or thereabouts, or you could be fined.” warned the site. In the same vein, it was addressed that an arrest has already been made on some tourists for been in possession of e-cig.
