Pound Sterling forecasts

Last week was pretty jam-packed as far as announcements were concerned with the Fed and the BoE both raising interest rates by 25bps.

Scrap the 90 day rule for Brits

Spain wants to eliminate the 90-day limit for UK visitors, allowing them to stay in the country indefinitely, as they were previously allowed to before Brexit.

Currently, visitors from outside the European Union (EU), including the UK, can visit Schengen countries for 90 days in every 180-day period.

According to a report by Publituris, Spain will ask Brussels to lift this rule for British tourists, with Spain’s Secretary of Tourism, Fernando Valdés, stating that this restriction “goes against the interests of Spain”, adding that “it is a rule that, unfortunately, is not something that Spain has established by itself or can get rid of”.
