Why are users with Contribute and Full Control Permissions having to request access to view SharePoint 2013 sites?

We recently migrated several basic team sites from SharePoint 2007 to 2013.  

Site owner added users to groups with full control and/or contribute permissions.  These users are unable to access the SharePoint sites until they request access to the sites and access has been granted by site owner or SP administrator.

Why is this occurring and how can users who have been granted Full Control, etc. view these SP sites without having to request access?

A few things to consider.

Was your migration within the same domain? If these were in two different AD domains, that may be the cause of the problem.

Also, as you go from classic mode authentication in 2007 to claims based in 2013, the user account will have to be remapped or relinked. This can be done with the Move-SPUser cmdlet.

This is likely because of the classic to claims auth change.  Please review this article, the second half will apply as you cannot convert to claims in 2007, you'd have to do it after migrating.  The important thing is creating the 2013 web apps via powershell and specifiying Classic auth.  This is what you'd want to migrate your 2007 content to.
