In some countries western union transfer can be sent only in national currency. All transfers sending out in USD, but western union converts it to local currency of the country to which it being sent. It conducted with national money regulation restrictions of some countries.

Any transfer sent to EU country will be converted to EURO automatically (Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Austria, Netherlands, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Belgium, Spain, France, Portugal, Greece, Latvia.) Receiving USD by western union in these countries is not possible.

We recommend to convert USD to EURO before sending money to EU countries. In this way exchange rate in most cases will be better than Western Union has.
By sending 2000 euro you save around 80 euro just on exchange rate if you convert USD to EURO in your local bank rather than WU.
In any case Western Union pick up in EU possible only in EUR
