Apostolic Nunciature in Jordan

Formerly, the Apostolic Delegate in Jerusalem was also the Apostolic Delegate for Jordan. The office holders were therefore the same as those mentioned above for Jerusalem.

 On March 3, 1994, the Holy See and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan agreed to establish full diplomatic relations. Subsequently, a Nunciature was established in Amman on April 6, 1994 and a Jordanian Embassy was accredited to the Holy See.

 Former Apostolic Nuncios:

His Excellency Most Reverend Giuseppe Lazzarotto 1994-2000
His Excellency Most Reverend Fernando Filoni 2001-2006
His Excellency Most Reverend Francis Assisi Chullikatt 2006-2010
His Excellency Most Reverend Giorgio Lingua 2010- 2015
His Excellency Most Reverend Alberto Ortega Martín 2015 at present
