That's one way to get it done.
You can also support multiple regions by copying the uploaded AMI using aws ec2 copy-image if you like.
I left a comment suggesting improvement to by using awss own --query flag to extract the output instead of filtering through jq (thus reducing the need for yet another tool).
I gave instructions in the comment as much as I can without testing the specific command.
I created initial script for making AMI with importing VMDK. I think this way is more useful for multiple region support.
The commit is here: https://github.com/vyos/vyos-build/commit/3dc5653bbb8133f976e4603c8f78a5f6cf686405
What do you think?

@amos.shapira I was just working through the packer script from the original script you gave me. I'll wait to see what you work out and see if I can apply something similar to GCE
I'm not building the VyOS from source but extract it from the nightly .iso file.
This works great for me with VyOS 1.1.7.
Debian Jessie doesn't have the kernel 3.18 which is required for OverlayFS.

I'm building the VyOS disk image under another OS (latest test using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS) and was testing the extra configuration script under chroot. Your response would explain that the missing unionfs packages on the host OS could explain the error I get. I'll install them and try again.

I have a python script which will read a VPN Connection configuration from a Virtual Gateway and emit VyOS commands to configure it as a client to that VPN connection.

Looks like a worthy endeavor.
