What are congratulatory messages?
Residents in NSW celebrating a birthday milestone or wedding anniversary can receive a personal message of congratulations.
Upon request, the NSW Premier will send a message of congratulations to NSW residents turning 80 years of age and every fifth year thereafter up to 90 and then every year thereafter.
The NSW Premier also sends messages to couples celebrating 50 years of marriage and every year thereafter.
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.
