Previously, he was nuncio in Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, DR Congo (2010-2015) and Australia (2015-2021).

Mgr. Yllana made the world news in October last year, when it became clear that he had been infected with the coronavirus and had met Pope Francis just before. Fortunately, it soon became clear that the pope himself was not infected.
