Smoke Free Status of Outdoor Places

Does the law require any outdoor or quasi-outdoor spaces to be smoke free or restrict smoking in any way? Examples of such places include within a specified distance of doorways, outdoor patios of bars or restaurants, parks/beaches, outdoor stadiums, and outdoor markets.

Children's playgrounds


Law No. 349 of 2002 prohibits smoking in indoor and outdoor children’s playgrounds.

The law aligns with FCTC Art. 8 and the FCTC Art. 8 Guidelines, which require Parties to adopt effective measures to provide for protection from exposure to tobacco smoke “in indoor workplaces, public transport, indoor public places and, as appropriate, other public places.”
