There is no comprehensive legal framework on tobacco products in Venezuela, but several resolutions regulate different aspects concerning the sale of tobacco products. Neither heat-not-burn (HnB) nor oral tobacco products are expressly regulated, but are subject to the general tobacco resolutions. Pouches are classified as a consumer product.

Any form of advertising of tobacco products is banned. Retailers of tobacco products need to obtain a general Economic Activities Licence issued by the competent authority. The sale of cigarettes or other tobacco products through vending machines is banned.

All tobacco products are subject to a tax of 70% of their wholesale price. Nicotine pouches are not subject to this tax.
