Protocol NT

Protocol NT advises government on all aspects of protocol relating to ceremony, official gifts, the Northern Territory (NT) flag, Coat of Arms and other official emblems of the NT.

The work group coordinates arrangements for dignitary visits, manages VIP chauffeur services, State Funerals and memorial services.

Protocol NT also has responsibility for managing official ministerial hospitality.

These services help government promote the Territory as a place to live, work and invest, contribute to the growth of stronger national and international relationships and help foster a strong community spirit through recognising achievement and celebrating important events.
