Morocco will increase customs duties on e-cigarettes under the 2024 budget, reports Morocco World News.  

The import duties would hike the levies on disposable electronic cigarettes from 2.5 percent to 40 percent. The goal of the increase is to apply the same import duty rate to disposable electronic cigarettes as that applied to other electronic cigarettes for the 2023 fiscal year, according to the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

The 2024 draft budget also proposes an increase in import duty from 2.5 percent to 30 percent for certain consumer products and equipment. This increase would “strengthen the protection of local production of these products and equipment and promote the establishment of production units in Morocco.”
