Unless you have specific gpg import options, it should just work.
If in doubt, build gpgme and test with tests/run-import or run

 GPGME_DEBUG=7:gpgme.log ./gpgme-json 

and check the log file.  It might however, be easier to put

 log-file /some-file

into gpg.conf to see gpg's diagnostics.  GPGME also has an audit feature
which can be used to get the gpg diagnostics; I am not sure whether
gpgme-json supports this, though.
