Australian Federal Police are to resume their training mission in Vanuatu nine months after the Pacific island nation kicked them out as part of a diplomatic row.
Vanuatu expelled 12 AFP officers in May 2012, two weeks after the AFP arrested senior Vanuatan official Clarence Lawry Marae while he was passing through Sydney airport with Prime Minister Sato Kilman.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade branded the expulsion a "retaliation" for Marae's arrest.
"They will be returning to Vanuatu in the next few weeks," a spokesman for Senator Carr confirmed to AAP on Wednesday.
Marae was charged with one count of conspiring to defraud the Commonwealth of Australia over allegations he was involved in a $4.5 million tax fraud.
He remains in custody after a Brisbane court denied him bail because it judged him to be a flight risk. He is due face a three-day committal hearing next month.
At the time, Mr Kilman described Marae's arrest as "kidnap and breach of diplomatic protocol".
