Police first went after Mrs Hajiyeva in February but her lawyers had claimed that her husband was the victim of an unfair trial.
Mrs Hajiyeva was only known as Mrs A until a judge lifted an anonymity order last month.
Mrs Hajiyeva's release on bail is subject to a £500,000 bond and arrangements for an electronic tagging device to be installed at her Knightsbridge home.
Last week the agency, which investigates cross-border and organised crime, seized 49 items of jewellery worth £400,000 from Christie's auction house, where Hajiyeva's daughter had taken them to be valued.

Her lawyers have said the wealth order "is part of an investigative process, not a criminal procedure, and it does not involve the finding of any criminal offense".
