Not out of the box. There are some tools out there 3rd party that can At a limited basis but Teams does not yet have any migration tools or channel move options, even in the same tenant.

@FemkeCornelissen Hello Femke, I was just about to answer and noticed that had already been done :)


Anyway, there's a conversation that can provide you with some more information here



As for a "tool" i noticed there is a requested feature at Teams UserVoice. Go there and vote to stay updated.

'Import / Export for data migration between tenants'
