    I am planning to import a new 3ds, and I was wondering if my gateway will work on it? Also, will I be able to transfer my cias from the emunand of my old 3ds xl onto the new 3ds if gateway use is possible?

    You will need cubic ninja/ocarina of time that's the same region on the console

    Edit
    Also depends on the firmware the console is on, must be 9.2 or below

    You will not be able to transfer the CIAs, you will have to reinstall them.

    So I would only need the ocarina of time/cubic ninja from the region of the 3ds i am importing?
    Also, would I need to keep the game, or can I sell it after using it once?

    You need to keep the game. You need to do the exploit (Which is booting the game, either choosing a save file, or just going through 2 menus, both are easy) every time you try to boot into EmuNand/Gateway Mode

    It will work, but if you ever uninstall it by mistake it's always safer to keep the exploited game, as the prices are never sure.

    You don't need to keep the game if you do the things the right way:
    • Install the old system settings menu CIA
    • Install the ds card whitelist CIA in order to be able to use the blue card
    • Install the DS based nvram installer to use it with your DS card
    • Install the nvram hack using the DS card every time it is wiped out
    • Access Gateway Hack using DS profile
    • Profit

    If you're dealing with ebay, try asking for the first few digits of the serial number. They are a good indicator of what FW it came with.
    If its an import store, you'll just have to take a chance.
