Australians who are celebrating a milestone birthday or wedding anniversary can, depending on the circumstances, receive personal congratulations from the Premier of Victoria, Governor of Victoria, Prime Minister, Governor-General or The Queen.

 

What do I need to provide, to arrange the message?

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.
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.
