Yes, you should skip import of components and versions.
When you are about to import the project configuration, select to skip "Versions" and "Components" in the "Do not load" window of the "Project configuration file upload" page, so that they are not created in the new project. You can find a complete description of the process here: Moving a project to another instance.
So what happens if the filters has components or versions? While importing we observed below error. Is it related?

Having a look at the query for that filter would clarify the reason for this problem. The filter query can be found in the "<query>" element of the filter description in the XML file. The fastest check would be pasting that query into the advanced mode window, in the JIRA page "Search for issues", and see if that query is rejected and why. Sometimes, simply the examination of the query string is enough to find out why it cannot be parsed correctly.
Thus, this issue need not be related to the fact that project components do not exist yet. If it were related, the best course of action would be:
