Figma can't import Adobe Illustrator (.ai) files right now, but you can drag or paste .svg files into a Figma document, and it will import those designs perfectly.
First you need to export your Illustrator .ai file. If you have Adobe Illustrator still installed, open the file in Illustrator, copy everything in your artboard, then open Figma and paste it. Or, export your Illustrator file in SVG format (click File -> Export -> SVG), then drag the file into a Figma document.
If you don't have Adobe Illustrator, you could install the free Adobe XD, open the Illustrator file there, and follow the same steps to get the design into Figma.
Or, use a free conversion tool like CloudConvert. Upload your .ai file, then download the converted SVG file, and drag it into a Figma document.
It is not possible to directly import an Adobe Illustrator file (.ai) into Figma. What can be done is to use a file converter to export it to a format such as SVG or PNG.
Here is the direct link to convert an AI file to SVG https://www.zamzar.com/convert/ai-to-svg
You can then download the converted file and drag it into a Figma Document.
I noticed there are a lot of issues while importing AI files into Figma through SVG. Most of the time the paths get damaged and you have to do extra work. We recently released a Illustrator to Figma converter and you can check it out here: https://xd2sketch.com/converter/ai-to-figma
