The decision came on the recommendation of the Minister of Interior, Lieutenant General Tarifi Idris, the first human rights police officer, and the Ministry of the Interior published it on its Twitter page.
The decision includes those who acquired Sudanese citizenship during the rule of former President Omar al-Bashir, who was overthrown in April 2019.
The ministry indicated that "the decision came against the background of negative medical or security reports (about these people), or because they obtained them in contravention of the legal rules for obtaining nationality by naturalization."
The Sudanese media reported that the vast majority of those who have had their nationality withdrawn are Arabs, especially Syrians.
Al-Burhan also canceled a decision issued by Al-Bashir to exempt Syrians from obtaining a visa to enter Sudanese lands, according to the ministry, which added that "according to the new decision, Syrians will have to obtain a prior entry visa."
About 150,000 Syrians live in Sudan, most of them in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and they came after the outbreak of the conflict in Syria in 2011, and for many, Khartoum was a stop before heading to another country.
