I want to migrate Sitecore 8.1 and 8.2 Initial version to 9.0 Initial version. Can I use Express Migration Tool for this upgrade? If yes then which version?

    If you can upgrade to Sitecore 9.1, I would recommend using update package directly -> dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Experience_Platform/91/… – Peter Procházka Jun 20 '19 at 10:10
  • Ok but i wanted to evaluate whether i can do it by SEM as it would be faster approach. In compatibility table i do not see 8.1 & 8.2 in source does it mean SEM doesn't support these versions? – Jitendra Ghanekar Jun 20 '19 at 10:25
  • Express Migration tool doesn't support migration from 8.X to 9.X so you should use the update package and that's the fastest & safest way comparing with any other option. – Gobinath Saminathan Jun 20 '19 at 12:51

On newer versions like 8.1 and 8.2 you do not need the migration tool. The upgrade package can take you directly there in one step.

This is a change from earlier versions of Sitecore where you would have to do step by step for each version using update packages.
