The apostolic delegation to Syria was established in 1762. In the twentieth century it was dependent on the congregation for the Oriental Church. It was located initially in Aleppo, then in Beirut until 1947, then in Damascus. In 1929, Palestine, Transjordan, and Cyprus were transferred from the jurisdiction of the apostolic delegation for Syria to the apostolic delegation for Egypt and Arabia. The office was vacant from 1948 to 1951, then held by a charge d'affaires until 1953, when it was raised to an internunciature. From 1958 to 1961, while Syria was part of the United Arab Republic, the office was closed. In 1966 the mission was raised to a nunciature
