Anniversary messages

Celebrating a Special Anniversary?

The office of Julian Leeser MP can organise official anniversary messages for constituents celebrating a special birthday or wedding anniversary. Depending on the milestone you can receive personal congratulations from the Prime Minister, Governor-General or The King.

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, and every year after a 70th wedding anniversary celebration.

When to Arrange the Message

You can make arrangements for anniversary messages up to three months before the celebration. You can also request a belated message up to one month after the birthday or wedding anniversary has passed. You must allow at least one month for the office to guarantee delivery of letters.

Where Will the Message Be Delivered?

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

How to Arrange a Message

To arrange an anniversary message, you can call the Office of Julian Leeser MP on (02) 9980 1822 or fill out the form below.

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.

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