    Hi Marc,

    These are the eligibility criteria for citizenship. 
    At the time you apply you must have been:
    •    living in Australia on a valid visa for the past 4 years
    •    a permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen for the past 12 months
    •    away from Australia for no more than 12 months in total in the past 4 years, including no more than 90 days in total in the past 12 months.

    Assuming you can tick all these criteria - you should be fine.

    You do need to be in Australia when submitting the citizenship application as well as when it will be decided.
    I would recommend you to inform the Department before you are travelling overseas while your application is being processed or while you are waiting for your ceremony.
    In most cases, they won’t approve your application while you are outside Australia. 
    You can look at this link to see the processing time of a citizenship application to have an idea of how long it usually takes them to process these applications.

    You must travel on your current passport and make sure you have a valid visa that allows you to return to Australia or apply for a Resident Return visa.

    Enjoy your trip,
