Hello all, Not been on any forum for a while, been very busy of late hope all are well. My question is can we still import vape products from China with all this Corona Virus pandemic or are the borders closed and nothing is leaving China. ASAIK Hiliq uses freight aircraft TNT and others may use DHL as to if this pesky virus can attach itself to freight, I do not know. Thanks in Advance. Stay well and Happy Vaping.
Exactly how long the lockdown might last is anyone's guess, but I've seen mention of it being lifted by around 10 February on a number of retail sites (eg. Fasttech, HiLiq). Different countries will also have their own restrictions in place too, so the exact route and service used for delivery could make a difference on a case by case basis.
TL;DR: 'Expect delays' until at least 10 February (ie. today) I would think, but even if the lockdown is lifted, there will probably be a large backlog as people and businesses return to work.
TL;DR: If you want to be "100% safe" from post, you could always postpone your order until more evidence turns up. That said, there's nothing at all to suggest the post is, or will be, any sort of transmission vector.
In short, I think that the best way to approach the situation is to ignore social media altogether, and get information from reputable sites that you trust. Personally, I find the BBC to be generally very reliable and informative, but your mileage may vary.
