Transfer .gov.uk domain between Cloudflare accounts

We need to transfer a .gov.uk domain from one Cloudflare account to another. We have registrar access to the domain.

Having read https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/204615358-How-to-move-domains-between-Cloudflare-accounts I’m not totally clear on the following:

  • does a .gov.uk domain require us to get Cloudflare Support involved?
  • or do we simply create the new account, then update the nameservers as specified in the new Cloudflare account?

Any direction gratefully received…

Moving a domain between accounts is really just starting from scratch on the new account. The only thing I’d recommend is to export the DNS records so you can import them into the new account:

Other than that, you’ll probably want to compare settings between the two accounts for that domain and incorporate any old settings into the new account.

So, to answer your questions: No, you don’t need Support’s help. Yes, new account and then update name servers.
