Who is eligible for a congratulatory message?

 

Birthdays

  • Prime Minister – 90th and every year thereafter

  • Governor General – 100th and every year thereafter

  • The Queen – 100th and every fifth year thereafter

 

Anniversaries

  • Prime Minister – 50th and every year thereafter

  • Governor General – 50th and every year thereafter

  • The Queen – 60th and every fifth year thereafter

 

You can arrange a congratulatory message through the office of the Hon Craig Kelly MP by completing this request form. 

 

If you are applying for a message on behalf of a relative or friend who lives in another electorate, their local federal member will be notified so they can send a message too. You will need to provide supporting documentation such as birth certificates or marriage certificates. If these are not available you can provide a statutory declaration. Statutory declaration forms are available at any post office or from the electorate office. Alternatively, you can find one here to print.

 

Where appropriate, your request to the Prime Minister will be passed on to the Governor-General and The Queen so you only have to make one application.

When should I arrange the message?

You can lodge a request for congratulatory messages up to two months before the celebration.

You can also request a belated message up to one month after the birthday or wedding anniversary has passed.

 

Where will the message be delivered?

Congratulatory messages can be posted directly to the recipient’s home address or alternatively to care-of address (such as a friend or relative) for surprises.

More information about congratulatory messages are available in the Australian Government’s brochure Official Anniversary Messages: A Guide to Arranging Messages for Significant Birthdays and Wedding Anniversaries.
