How to move lightsail instance elastic IP to EC2 instance Elastic IP


Greetings all,

Does anyone know how to port a lightsail elastic IP to VPC / EC2 Elastic IP? I can't find any migration tool. And the LightSail Elastic IP does not show up in VPC/EC2 Elastic IPs.

I'm about to take a snapshot of my LightSail Instance and port it to an EC2, but I want to keep the same public IP.

Thank you

IP addresses obtained with Lightsail cannot be migrated to EC2.

Note: IP addresses can't be transferred from Lightsail to Amazon EC2. Amazon EC2 instances that are created from exported Lightsail instances have a different IP address.
