Congratulatory Messages:

What are congratulatory messages?

Australians celebrating a special birthday or wedding anniversary can receive personal congratulations from the Prime Minister, Governor-General or the Queen. In addition, they can receive a card or message from their local members of the Federal and State Governments.

You can make a big day special for friends or relatives celebrating important milestones in their lives.

Who qualifies?

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 on request.

How to arrange a message.

Grayndler residents should contact my electorate office by email  A.Albanese.MP@aph.gov.au  or by phoning (02) 9564 3588.

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.

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 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.

Where will the message be delivered?

Messages can be delivered directly to the recipient or to a care-of address for surprises.

Portraits of the Queen:

Constituents of Grayndler can request a single portrait of Queen Elizabeth II or of Queen Elizabeth II with the Duke of Edinburgh at the email address a.albanese.mp@aph.gov.au or by calling (02) 9564 3588.

This portrait must be picked up from the office of Hon. Anthony Albanese MP at 334A Marrickville Rd, Marrickville NSW 2204.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our offices stand and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge the sorrow of the Stolen Generations and the impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We also recognise the resilience, strength and pride of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
