OMG UML Specification:

The OMG UML specification (UML Superstructure Specification, v2.1.1, p.112) states:

A package import is a relationship between an importing namespace and a package, indicating that the importing namespace adds the names of the members of the package to its own namespace. Conceptually, a package import is equivalent to having an element import to each individual member of the imported namespace, unless there is already a separately-defined element import.
