You can arrange a congratulatory message through Georgie Crozier's office by either:
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 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.
Supporting documentation in the form of a statutory declarations can be posted or hand delivered to 1/667-669 Glenhuntly Road, Caulfield. Supporting documentation in original form such as birth certificates or marriage certificates must be hand delivered to 1/667-669 Glenhuntly Road, Caulfield.
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.
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.
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.
