If you know of an Australian who has a milestone birthday or wedding anniversary coming up, did you know they may be entitled to a personal congratulation from the Prime Minister, the Governor-General or even the Queen.
The Prime Minister will send a message of congratulations to people turning 90 years of age or more. The Queen 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 Queen 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 Queen sends messages to couples celebrating 60 years of marriage and will write every five years after that upon request. More information is available by visiting the It’s An Honour website.
HOW TO ARRANGE THE MESSAGE
If you know someone with a special anniversary coming up, please contact my office to organise this special message.
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 like 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.
To arrange a message from the NT Chief Minister you should contact the office of your NT parliamentarian, which can be found on the NT Legislative Assembly website.
WHEN TO ARRANGE THE MESSAGE
You can make arrangements for anniversary messages up to two months before the celebration.
You can request a belated message up to one month after the birthday or wedding anniversary has passed.
More information can be found at the It’s An Honour website.
