Congratulatory Messages

Do you or someone you care about have a special day approaching?

Julie’s office will help you apply for a congratulatory message to be sent to you or someone you know who is about to celebrate a significant birthday or wedding anniversary.

Who qualifies?

The Prime Minister will send a message of congratulations to people turning 90 years of age or more. The King and Governor-General will send a message on a 100th birthday. On request, the Prime Minister and the Governor-General will write again every year and The King will write again every five years.

The Prime Minister and Governor-General send messages to couples celebrating 50 years of marriage and subsequent wedding anniversaries. The King sends messages to couples celebrating 60 years of marriage and will write every five years after that on request.

How do I get an Anniversary Message?

You can arrange a congratulatory message via my office. Call my office on (03) 6244 1222 or email [email protected]

Supporting Documentation

You will need to provide supporting documentation such as birth certificates or marriage certificates. If these are not available, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet requires that a statutory declaration be provided. Statutory declaration forms are available at any post office or from my electorate office.
