Shipping to The United States
In December 2020 the US government amended the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT) to prohibit the online sale of e-cigarettes to children. The legislation, effective from 26th Match 2021, expands the definition of e-cigarettes to include electronic “nicotine delivery systems”. As a responsible vendor we must comply with PACT.
Therefore, from Friday 26 March, Stealthvape Ltd will no longer export to the USA any device that, through an aerosolized solution, delivers nicotine, flavour, or any other inhalable substance, including:
Advanced refillable personal vaporizer
Refills / Pods
The electronic components we manufacture and / or supply collectively known as “Mod Parts and “Rebuildable Supplies” are not covered by this legislation and will be shipped as normal.
