How do I arrange a message?

You can arrange a congratulatory message through my office:

  • Telephone: 07 3284 8008
  • In Person: 40 Hornibrook Esp., Clontarf QLD
  • OR Completing the submission form below

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 a birth or marriage certificate.

If these are not available you can provide a statutory declaration. Statutory declaration forms are available at any post office or HERE.

Your request to the Prime Minister will be passed on to the Governor-General and 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.
