Congratulatory Messages

Congratulatory messages from Her Majesty The Queen, the Governor General of Australia, the Prime Minister of Australia, the Governor of Tasmania and the Premier of Tasmania to those Tasmanians celebrating the achievement of significant birthdays and wedding anniversaries are available on request.

How to apply for a Congratulatory Message

Requests for messages may be made through the Communications and Protocol Unit of the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

Alternatively, you may apply through the electorate office of any Federal Member of Parliament or the office of any Senator.

Only one application needs to be lodged to receive all the messages from the various people.


You will need to provide supporting documentation such as a birth certificate or marriage certificate.  If these are not available you can provide a Statutory Declaration.

When to arrange the message

Ideally, you should apply for the congratulatory messages at least four to six weeks before the anniversary or birthday.
