Traditionally, the only way to get an alternate power brick has been via Xbox Support. It's possible to buy a spare PSU now via the site (though it isn't straightforward), but unfortunately your console has to be a 220v model already.

It's great that the exchange rate has people wanting to buy things from the USA, but it doesn't work out well for electronics that do not support worldwide voltage standards. Your best bet is to buy an Xbox One from a country with a 220-240v power standard.

Oh, I thought you were asking if you bought an Xbox One in the USA, could you use it in a 220-240v country. It wasn't clear that you had already bought one.

The only legitimate option I can think of is to contact Xbox Support for your country and see if they can sell you a 220v power brick.
