    How do I arrange the message?

    You can arrange a congratulatory message through the office of Ross Vasta by:

    • Calling the office on (07) 3893 3488 ; or
    • Visiting the electorate office at 69 Clara Street, Wynnum 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 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.

    You can provide this supporting documentation by:

    • Faxing a copy to the electorate office on (07) 3893 3422; or
    • Posting or hand delivering a copy to the electorate office at 69 Clara Street, Wynnum QLD 4178

    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.

    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.
