The Australian ban on imported nicotine ejuices has been postponed until January 1st, 2021. Australian vapers can place orders with Vapor4Life until further notice.

This is a welcome reprieve for adult smokers in Australia who have made the switch to vaping and depend almost entirely on imported nicotine e-liquids.
We apologize to any customers who stocked up prematurely in anticipation of the ban. Like the rest of the vaping world and the Australian Parliament, we were caught off-guard when this regulatory overreach was announced by the Australian Department of Health on June 19, 2020.
The initial vape ban was written so that even orders arriving on July 1st could be seized by customs and the recipient subject to stiff fines. Provided only a handful of business days to accept Australian orders before the continent was cut off entirely from nicotine eliquids, we naturally encouraged our loyal customers to stock up while they could still legally do so.
We urge you to contact your local representative as this is only a 6 month respite. Australian vapers should also seriously consider signing this petition sponsored by Liberals and Nationals for Vapers Rights:
Australia is 1 of only 2 developed countries that hasn’t legalised e-cigs. Fines of up to $220k for importing what is in most countries a legal product is overkill. We should regulate it so it’s sold safely. Sign our petition at https://t.co/QhSnRAptAk— Matthew Canavan (@mattjcan) June 24, 2020
