Nicotine-containing and nicotine-free e-cigarettes were banned in Saudi Arabia until the enactment of supreme decree 38621 (11/7/1440H), which lifted the ban on their import, sale and circulation. They were then regulated under the existing Anti-Smoking Law, which brought them under the tobacco regime.

Saudi Arabia is considering a new policy vision for promoting public health (Tobacco Endgame 2030) proposed by the National Committee for Tobacco Control. The new strategy suggests strengthening tobacco control; however, there are no proposals that could substantially change the regulatory framework.
