Starting today, you can copy Amazon RDS Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) encrypted database snapshots across AWS Regions. This includes databases encrypted with Oracle Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), Microsoft SQL Server TDE, and snapshots created from SQL Server Multi-AZ instances.
Copying of TDE encrypted snapshots works across AWS commercial regions (non-governmental regions). For more details on copying a database snapshot across regions, please refer to Copying a DB Snapshot in the Amazon RDS documentation.
