I applied for a job and had an interview 4 days ago. Now my application status says "imported" - does that mean that I am going to get the job offer?

Congratulations on your interview! It's difficult to say if this means you will get a job offer or not. Applicant tracking systems all have different statuses/names so it's hard to say that this is their term for the initiation of a job offer. The term "imported" could simply mean they imported your resume or other information into their system from another source. The only valid way to confirm your status is to reach out to the recruiter for an update. If they gave you a timeline and you don't hear back from them within that time frame, I would recommend reaching out directly to the recruiter for an update.

Good luck!

As the previous poster mentioned, every company is going to have slightly different lingo.  You can sometimes find insight from other candidates by researching on Glassdoor or LinkedIn to see what the language meant in previous situations.  Your best bet is to reach out to the recruiter. 
A really good rule of thumb for next time is to ask the recruiter when you should expect a response and if you are feeling extra ambitious, you could ask them what you should expect to see in your online profile as you navigate through the hiring process.  This may also be info that is shared on the company's careers page. 
I get it that this process can be a challenge.  I hope you get this job if that's what would be best for you, but every experience should be looked at as part of the building process towards your awesome, future career.
Best of luck!
