Thanks for reporting. The issue is caused by access restrictions introduced by the app isolation. It may be a wider problem than just importing contacts. An internal bug has been filed about this.

While one cannot import contacts from “miscellaneous folders” (e.g. /home/defaultuser/tmp), it still works from standard folders like /home/defaultuser/Downloads and /home/defaultuser/Documents.

VCF files sent to a phone via Bluetooth end up in folder /home/defaultuser/Documents.

Thank you for taking the time. I can confirm that the import is successful if the file is located in Documents. This is a feasable solution!
