Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility now supports importing data stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) buckets to PostgreSQL tables in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. A new extension, aws_s3, has been added to perform the import operation. You can import any data format that is supported by the PostgreSQL COPY command, using the ARN role association method or using Amazon S3 credentials. 

Import from Amazon S3 is supported by Amazon Aurora for PostgreSQL version 2.3, and is compatible with PostgreSQL 10.7. To learn more, please visit the documentation page
