I play League of Legends on a daily basis in a client that is available in the South East Asian region called "GARENA", which is the official publisher of LoL in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, etc.

My question is, how do I move the account from there to the normal League of Legends client, if at all possible?

Thanks in advance!

From what I see, the last time Garena offered transfers to any Riot server is 3 years ago, when they used to offer transfers to the Oceania server. The offer ended by the end of 2013.

Since then, I haven't seen any request for a Garena-to-Riot transfer entertained within any of their public support channels. Quoting a post from player support for the Philippines server,

Hi, unfortunately account transfer/migration to other server is already not possible. You would need to start a new account if you want to play on other LoL regions.

The best case is to contact support , I've done some looking and a page they had called "Transfer" is no longer available, so it seems the only way to transfer, if it's even possible, is to contact support and request a transfer. They may be able to do something. Failing that, it seems making a new account might be the only solution to play on a different region.
