Import keys from .gnupg folder

Hi all,

I was a bit ignorant to the nuances of importing/exporting GPG keys, and 
as a result I simply copied the.gnupg folder from my home directory and 
wiped my hard drive. Is it possible to import these keys on another 
installation from this folder? The public key is on a public key-server, 
and I have the private keys in the folder.

The version of GPG on RHEL7.4 is 2.0.22, while Arch happens to be on 
2.2.4-1. Would this be problematic?
