    You can use Layer - Add Layer - Add Vector Layer instead. Data are opened with GDAL and this manual applies gdal.org/drv_osm.html. – user30184 Jun 29 '18 at 19:50

    The old OSM importer from QGIS 2 was dropped in QGIS 3 due to lots of unresolved bugs. The QuickOSM plugin also enables to read osm raw files. – AndreJ Jun 30 '18 at 5:27
