This new law comes into force in Australia on 1 October 2021.

What happens if my order is stopped by the Australian Border Force? What happens if I don't have a prescription?

The Australian Border Force may hold your order if there is no prescription, or they suspect it is otherwise non-compliant. 

If this happens, the Australian Border Force will refer the import to the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for assessment. The TGA will then contact you to ask for any other information they need. If you’re unable to satisfy their requirements the TGA can request that the Australian Border Force forfeit (destroy) the goods. You may also face penalties for importing a prescription medicine without legal authority (fines of up to $222,000). 

It is important to understand that as the importer you are solely responsible for ensuring you are meeting all country (and state) regulations when placing orders with HiVape (or any overseas vape supplier). 

You will not be able to request the parcel be returned to us, nor can you request a refund if your order is held, delayed, seized, or forfeited (destroyed). HiVape is in no way responsible for any penalties, fines, loss of product, or additional fees you may incur.
