How to get a nicotine prescription in Australia

Beginning 1st October 2021, consumers importing nicotine products to vape for smoking cessation will require a valid medical prescription. There’s no need to panic about this as we have all the information you need to prepare yourself.

How Shosha Can Help

When the new regulation is in place, we will have a system to allow customers to upload their prescription during checkout on our website. This means that you will not need to send us a copy until your prescription is expired.

Why Get A Prescription Before October?

As the new law is coming into effect from the 1st of October, we expect a lot of applications for nicotine prescriptions that will be requested by many customers. As such, to prevent any delays that may arise from this, we encourage you to apply now to ensure you are prepared.

What To Do If I've Already Had My Prescription?

If you’ve got your prescription, you’ve done all the hard parts. Congratulations. To make it easier for our customers, we will have a system in place to allow customers to upload a copy of their prescription onto their Shosha account and any purchases made on that account will not require the prescription to be provided again until it is expired.
