Are Elastic IP addresses transferable from one AWS account to another to be associated with an AC2 instance? or a least Allocate Elastic IP address on the ather aws account with same ip adresse?

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]

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

Hope this helps

  • Thank your response is very useful, but I do not have access to the technical support under the basic plan

  • Please just open an "Account and Billing support" case instead of technical one. Thank you.
