Malta: oral tobacco and nicotine pouch regulation, May 2024

The Maltese government has not disclosed any plans to lift the ban on smokeless tobacco, which is why oral tobacco will remain illegal for now.

The Maltese government has not announced any plans to regulate nicotine pouches, but we expect that a framework for nicotine pouches could be outlined in the coming years, following the revision of the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD).

This report provides analysis of the current regulatory framework in place in Malta for oral tobacco and nicotine pouches, covering all policy areas.
