Yes, and you will lose some value with each conversion. I would hope to simplify with just one bank and never converting any money twice. Choose a bank that can have both IDR and USD accounts, has good USD to IDR exchange, and good international USD wire transfer. I don't know which is best, perhaps HSBC. Deposit your USD to USD account, convert the amount you need for local spending to IDR in your IDR account, wire transfer USD to your Italian bank and let them convert it to Euro.Ah...that means I have to convert all my salary from USD to IDR and then from IDR to Euro? Seems too complicated....
