What are the options for migrating database to Azure SQL?

There are two available options, Standard tier offline (also called “one-time”) and online (Premium tier) migration.  The Standard pricing tier, which offers 1, 2, and 4-vCore options, is generally available and free to customers. The Premium pricing tier supports offline and online migrations (also called "continuous migration") for business-critical workloads that require minimal downtime.
