Sysops are by default able to make transwiki import (see
Special:ListGroupRights). Once the sources are added they'll be able to do it
via Special:Import.

There's no need to create a separate user group of importers because it already
exists, it is called 'transwiki importers' and can be added by the stewards at
meta. That group allows you to make transwiki importing as sysops can do.

Paralel, an 'import' group exists too but it allows you to make direct
importing via XML file. Its usage is discouraged since XML importing is
insecure.
