Importing is done similarly but you will need to press the import button, which is right next to the export one you just used. That should open this window where you can input the profile code of your desired crosshair profile.
With this you can import different and custom Valorant crosshair settings, created by anyone in the community. All you need are those Valorant crosshair codes that contain the customized crosshair profile. A lot of sites that do pro game guides, also include the crosshair codes for the professional players in it.

Why are crosshairs important?
If aiming in Valorant was considered an art form, then your crosshair would be your instrument or tool of choice. Sure if you’re talented or you have trained enough, it won't make a difference. Settings like sensitivity and crosshair should always be based on what fits your playstyle the most and what's most comfortable for you.
But apart from that there’s nothing wrong with trying out different custom crosshair settings, especially the ones pro players are using. Luckily for you Riot Games have managed to create a system, through which you can share, import and export crosshairs in Valorant.

To do this you need to click on the Options button in the top right corner, unless you’re trying to do it in game, for which you need to just hit the Escape button.
Once you are in this section you will need to choose the Settings button and all of your account settings will open up. After General and Controls, the Crosshair tab is the third column which then branches out to four different types of crosshair settings. Here is where the fun begins!
Crosshair Settings profiles
Riot Games have allowed us to create custom crosshair settings and save them through a system called crosshair profile. You can create multiple different crosshair profiles which are better suited for different maps, agents and weapons.
By going into the Primary Crosshair settings you can customize your selected profile to create the perfect crosshair for you.
Customizing your crosshair
Starting off you can experiment with the center dot thickness and center dot opacity for some iconic dot crosshairs used by multiple professional players. Or you could just turn it off and create a different crosshair.
Crosshair profiles can have inner lines and outer lines, which you can also customize. Both of those can have outlines, which you can also edit through a setting called outline opacity. This is one of the most important settings for creating your preferred crosshair.
