Returning to Rome in 1979, he studied at the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy and graduated in 1983, whence he also earned his doctorate in canon law from the Gregorian, and joined the Vatican’s diplomatic corps.
After serving as secretary for the nunciatures to the Ivory Coast (1983-1987) and to Paraguay (1987-1990), Broglio worked at the Vatican Secretariat of State as desk officer for Central America and then as personal secretary to Cardinal Secretary of State Angelo Sodano.
On February 27, 2001, Broglio was appointed Nuncio to the Dominican Republic, as well as Apostolic Delegate to Puerto Rico, and Titular Archbishop of Amiternum. He received his episcopal consecration (covered by a National Geographic Channel program called "Inside the Vatican") on the following March 19 from Pope John Paul II himself, with Cardinals Angelo Sodano and Giovanni Battista Re serving as co-consecrators, at St. Peter's Basilica.
Pope Benedict XVI later named Broglio head of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA on November 19, 2007. The Archbishop was formally installed as such on January 25, 2008, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
