You don't import policies to OUs - You can import them -   then apply them to OUs

What are you trying to do ?

yes you can use the export/backup GPO option from gpedit.msc you can then move the backup files over to the new servers

To import a Group Policy object

    Open Group Policy Management.

    In the console tree, double-click Group Policy Objects in the forest and domain containing the Group Policy object (GPO) into which you want to import settings.


        Forest name


        Domain name

        Group Policy Objects

    Right-click the GPO, and then click Import Settings.

    Follow the instructions in the Import Settings Wizard, and then click Finish.
