Yes.  REST allows you to create issues.

hello Nic! Yes, i went through the documentation and found out that an issue can be created! But I wanted to know whether we can import test cases written in excel to JIRA using its REST API? Thanks a lot for your response!

Yes, you need to convert each test case into a REST create call.

Sorry, that was a bit short. What I'm trying to get at is that yes, you can import stuff over REST, although it's not strictly an import, it's a "create new things". You'll need to work through your data to decide what to import and how, and then use each one to create a REST call to "create issue" feeding it the data in the format REST needs it. Without knowing your data, I can't really tell you a lot more. There are times when CSV import is going to be a lot better than REST.
