It surprises me when I kept failing importing content from WordPress.com to self-hosted WordPress installation.The error messages were:

Failed to import

and

Invalid post type

Fortunately, a simple google search solves this. The link to WordPress Forums above describes a “hack” on how to import content from WordPress.com to self-hosted WordPress installation.

Hint: compress it into .gz first, then import it. It is quite weird but it works.
