Citizenship from abroad or in Australia?

Hi there, my partner is a permanent resident and eligible for citizenship. She has been in Brazil for 3 months already and may stay for a while due to family issues. She wants to apply for citizenship in February. What would be easier, applying from Brazil or from in Australia? I don't know what the processing times are? Are they the same? All I do know is that if you apply from outside Australia, you need to be here at the drop of a hat to attend to tests etc. she's gonna go back to Brazil for a bit after she gets the passport but with the intention of coming back to live here in the very near future. Basically she wants to be here for as little time as necessary during the process because of her fathers health. Any advice and info much appreciated. Cheers.

Mentioning being away for 3 months already, are you aware of this residence requirement :

* not have been absent from Australia for more than one year in the past 4 years, including no more than 90 days in the year before applying.

Yeah I read something like that , but remember thinking that she was eligible. So given the circumstances, does it seem that she's not. Is it 90 days in the current year of application or the previous year?

If she applies for citizenship in February, as mentioned, (assume 14th Feb 2017), there are two periods to consider:
  • 14 Feb 2016 to 14 Feb 2017: No more than 90 days outside Australia.
  • 14 Feb 2013 to 14 Feb 2017: No more than 365 days outside Australia.
