The Apostolic Nunciature of the Holy See to Malaysia is the diplomatic mission of the Holy See to Malaysia, equivalent to an embassy. It is located at 171 Jalan Ampang Hilir, Kuala Lumpur. The nunciature was established in 2013, when Malaysia became the 179th state to establish diplomatic relations with the Holy See.[1] The current Apostolic Nuncio is Archbishop Joseph Salvador Marino, who was named to the position by Pope Benedict XVI on 16 January 2013. Marino is also the Apostolic Nuncio to East Timor and Apostolic Delegate to Brunei.

The Apostolic Nunciature to Malaysia is an ecclesiastical office of the Catholic Church in Malaysia, with the rank of ambassador. The nuncio serves both as the ambassador of the Pope (as head of State of Vatican City) to the King of Malaysia, and as delegate and point-of-contact between the Catholic hierarchy in Malaysia and the Pope (as head of the church).
