Hi, I want to secure my BTC before I import keys in coinomi to get free BTG, So I exported keys from electrum, then creating new wallet, All good but I sort off get wallet without seed?

When I import keys there is no seed, when i create standart wallet with seed there is no option to import key.

Can I import it and have new wallet with new seed and my btc?

Thanks

What you should do is to send your BTC from Electrum to another wallet,but not by importing private keys or seed.You can not import your private keys in Electrum wallet with seed,only thing you can do is to use option "New/Restore" and create new wallet like you do.

Only way you will get wallet protected with seed and your BTC in that wallet is to download new Electrum wallet and then send your coins to this wallet like normal transaction or using swap option.

In order to successfully securing your bitcoins you have to split your btc/btg. This does not work if you just export your seed/private keys
and import them to another wallet-software. In fact.. this may even harm your btc. You should try not to move your seed/priv keys around
on your pc a lot. When you export/import your keys, you basically don't change anything besides the User interface you are using to access your funds.

problem is i dont want pay fees

You have 2 options:
1) Send BTC to a new btc-wallet (new address, not just new wallet-software) and pay a 2$ fee (may be higher with lot of dust inputs)
2) Safe 2$ on fee but have your btc at risk when importing private keys to "claim" btg.

You want your BTC safe&secure but you but you do not want to pay some fee in order to get that.I say you again that you can not import private keys in Electrum and have such wallet seed protected.

Since you have private keys uninstall Electrum,then download new copy and create new wallet with seed.After that use option New/Restore and create new wallet with option "I have private keys".Then from that wallet you need to send your BTC to first created wallet(one with seed) and you need pay fee for that.Use option to set fee manually and set fee at will.
