Importing does not turn your non-versioned directory into a versioned
one; rather, it imports the contents of your non-versioned directory
into the repository and makes no changes to your local directory. You
then delete (or move out of the way) your local non-versioned
directory and get a new working copy from the repository.

A checkout is the only way to get a working copy.

There is, however, also the "in-place import" concept which may be
useful:
