Sudan was designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1993 due to concerns about support to international terrorist groups to include the Abu Nidal Organization, Palestine Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Hizballah.
In the mid-1990s, Sudan served as a meeting place, safe haven, and training hub for international terrorist groups, such as al-Qa’ida. Usama bin Laden was provided safe haven in Sudan for five years until he was expelled by the Sudanese government in 1996. Sudan’s support to al-Qa’ida has ceased but elements of al-Qa’ida and ISIL-linked terrorist groups remained active in Sudan in 2015. The United States and Sudan worked cooperatively in countering the threat posed by al-Qa’ida and ISIL in 2015, which included their use of transit and facilitation routes within the country.
In 2014, members of Hamas were allowed to raise funds, travel, and live in Sudan. However, in 2015 the use of Sudan by Palestinian designated terrorist groups appeared to have declined. The last known shipment was the Israeli-interdicted KLOS-C in 2014.
In June 2010, four Sudanese men sentenced to death for the killing of two U.S. Embassy staff members on January 1, 2008, escaped from Khartoum’s maximum security Kober prison. That same month of the escape, Sudanese authorities confirmed that they recaptured one of the four convicts, and a second escapee was reported killed in Somalia in May 2011. The recaptured murderer is being held in Kober Prison, and, as of December 2015, appeals of his pending death sentence were still ongoing. The whereabouts of the other two convicts were unknown at year’s end, although one is rumored to have been killed in Somalia in November 2015.

What makes me laugh Is no one is so critical of other countries immigration policies.. For example israilies unable to enter certain middle eastern countries, or muslims unable to enter Israel.. which is the same reason the US ban is in force I must add..
And didn't Australia leave a boat load if immigrants in the ocean to die a few years ago.. until they were rescued by another nation..
All this is because it is trump and the speed of this rule, and before I get slaughtered.. yes.. immigrants from certain countries should be vetted before being able to enter..
Look at Sweden, Germany and France for gods sake.. not to mention what the future holds for Europe now..
Shame these rules were not put in place years ago all across the western world..
If there are no concerns then you may enter.. any inkling of danger than I'm sorry but no..
