After announcing earlier this month that the import function would be live before the end of February, IO Interactive has confirmed that owners of Hitman 1 and 2 can import both games' locations into Hitman 3 for free.
It's been a bit of a quandary for the studio, with Hitman 3 being an Epic Store exclusive and Hitman 2 only available on Steam. IO's initial solution was to offer an access pass for the Hitman 2 locations at a discounted rate, which shockingly enough wasn't received very well. They then promised that they would work on a solution to import the locations free-of-charge for existing users, but that it would take some time.

IO is still using the access pass as a means to transfer locations over to Hitman 3, but they've now thrown up a dedicated web page for owners of the first two games to claim the passes for free. It's "a simple three-step process," one which IO recommends you do on your PC as the website isn't optimised for mobile.
Hitman 3 has been out for just shy of a month now, and it's been a hit within our (virtual) office. Andy gave the game a stunning 90, while Fraser won't rest until his dreams of being taken out by Agent 47 come true.
