Police said Mr Valencia had been in Australia for some time on a student visa but left shortly after Ms McRae's death and travelled to South America and then into Aruba.

Det Supt Doherty said the delay in the man's extradition after he was arrested in February was due to international legal complexities.

"And so, it was just the legal issues that had to be sorted out prior to us being able to be go there."

"Today's result could not have been achieved without the assistance and support of our international law enforcement partner agencies — particularly the Korps Politie Aruba [Aruba Police Force] and the Australian Federal Police," he said.

"This has been a difficult and complex investigation for detectives, who have spent months liaising with our partners to safely navigate the challenges and restrictions impacting worldwide travel due to COVID-19."

He added that the four detectives who travelled to Aruba would now enter a 14-day isolation in hotel quarantine before returning to work.

NSW Police also extended thanks to the FBI and the US Customs and Border Protection agencies for their assistance.
