    No - it doesn't matter - I have friends with multiple iTunes accounts in many different countries - particularly if you are living overseas and want content from your 'home' country. You need a Gift Card in the local currency but, for most countries, those are available on the Internet from retailers who make a small surcharge. Since you only need the card code and not the physical card itself they can email you the code and you're good to go in minutes.
