Moving from Bitbucket Server to Cloud is just a normal import of a repository. If you have projects and repositories in Bitbucket Server and are on Linux, take a look at this script, Migrate Atlassian Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud. Note that any settings like branch permissions, project/repository permissions has to be manually configured.
