transfer domain to route 53


I'm trying to transfer in a domain to route 53. The tag's been changed by the old registrar to GANDI. When I attempt to transfer in I get the error: invalid_expiration_date - Expiration date (2023-10-29 00:00:00) < 14 days Why is there this limitation?

Whats the current experation of the Domain?

When you transfer a domain between registrars, some TLD registries let you keep the same expiration date for your domain, some registries add a year to the expiration date, and some registries change the expiration date to one year after the transfer date.

When you register a domain with Amazon Route 53 or you transfer domain registration to Route 53, AWS will configure the domain to renew automatically. The automatic renewal period is typically one year, although the registries for some top-level domains (TLDs) have longer renewal periods.

Registration is not automatically extended when you transfer domain to another registrar. If you don't renew the domain before you transfer it, the registration could expire before the transfer is complete. If this happens, the domain becomes unavailable on the internet, and the domain name could become available for others to purchase.

I just encountered this. I resolved the issue by turning off auto-renew on the AWS Route 53 transfer request. Then once the transfer was complete I turned auto-renew back on.
