3. Nicotine liquid is banned from sale in Japan Nicotine Liquid Electronic Cigarette Japan

E-cigarettes containing nicotine are not sold in Japan. Regular cigarettes involve heating tobacco leaves to release the nicotine, but nicotine liquids such as ELFBAR deal with nicotine itself, not tobacco leaves.

Therefore, they are treated as medicines under the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Act, and their transfer and sale in Japan is prohibited. Therefore, the only way to obtain e-cigarettes containing nicotine is to purchase them overseas or import them personally.

One reason for its popularity may be the sense of exclusivity that comes from the fact that it is not yet available in Japan and cannot be obtained here .

4. Can anyone import nicotine liquid (ELFBAR) for personal use? Nicotine Liquid ELFBAR Personal Import

Although the transfer and sale of nicotine liquid is prohibited in Japan, there are people in the country who use electronic cigarettes that contain nicotine liquid. This is because the use and possession of nicotine liquid is not prohibited . Therefore, it is not illegal to purchase ELFBARs overseas or import them for personal enjoyment. In Japan , anyone over the age of 20 can import them for personal use.

ELFBAR is imported personally from the United States, so please be aware that it will take approximately 7 to 10 days for the product to arrive after you place your order.

In addition, under tax law, imported goods are subject to customs duties. If you import a product that costs more than 16,667 yen, customs duties are levied at approximately 9% of the product price plus a handling fee of 1,000 yen, excluding shipping costs. Therefore, rather than importing a large amount of ELFBAR at once, we recommend purchasing it in multiple installments for an amount less than the tax-free amount.
