Yes, it is possible to move an elastic IP address across accounts. All you have to do is Open a support cases from both the source and destination accounts to authorize and acknowledge the transfer

---request content---
Elastic IP: 
source account id: 
target account id:  
Use case description:
---------------------

Once the transfer is completed internally by the Support:

Source account A needs to release the EIP.

Target Account B allocates the EIP using the following aws cli

$ aws ec2 allocate-address --domain vpc --address [EIP]

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/reference/ec2/allocate-address.html

Please also note An Elastic IP address is for use in a specific Region only, and cannot be moved to a different Region.

solution is from this post https://repost.aws/questions/QUcGjWBtwATZuyYFE9R83ivw/transfer-elastic-ip-addresses-from-one-aws-account-to-another

  • Hi ,

    Thanks you for your answer, but, How long does the whole process take? This is to have an estimation of the unavailability during the process.
