They are so many paid extensions for this. You may check magento marketplace for paid extensions. However if you are looking to it without any extension what you can do it just export the product to csv from one magento where you want to export the category and in the magento where you want to import the categories just import the exported product csv. All the categories will be created and you may delete the product if you dont want them to be in your magento.

  • ok Thanks for the response, We have huge number of category ids changes. – shivashankar m Aug 28 '17 at 12:51
  • In that case you may give this a try github.com/quafzi/magento-category-migration/blob/master/… However i have not used this and this is not a magento extension – magento noob Aug 28 '17 at 12:52
