Qatar World Cup
QATAR FINE REPLACEMENT PILOT SCHEME.
IF YOU’RE ARRESTED FOR VAPING IN QATAR
The World Cup is upon us, and if human rights abuses weren’t enough, E-cigarettes have been outlawed in Qatar since 2014.
Yep, if you’re caught puffing on a vape at the World Cup, you could face draw-dropping fines of up to 10,000 Riyals (around £2,200), or a maximum of three months in prison.
A Harry Kane red card or England losing on penalties (again!) is enough to tempt any ex-smoker to turn to tobacco again, but we want to help you stand strong and stick to E-cigarettes – risk free. After all, Public Health England says it’s the best way to quit real fags.
Thanks to our fines repayment pilot scheme at this year’s World Cup, we’ve got you covered if you feel the heavy hand of the law for vaping whilst out in the Gulf state.
*Riot Labs fine repayment scheme is a pilot scheme. Please register for interest. The importation of e-cigarettes and use of them in Qatar is against the law and visitors to the country use them at their own risk. Any fine application will be assessed on its own merits and Riot Labs reserves the right to not fulfil repayment.
