To solve this, I would create a new database with the same characterset as your dump file. I would then perform the import. Since the dump file and the database are the same characterset, you should not have any issues with the import. Once the data has been imported, I would change the database's characterset to match the destination characterset you desire. You can them export from this "temporary" database and then import to your final destination. Once done, simply remove your temporary tablespace.
