1. So long as you earn more than £18,600 you will be able to take her in as a family member or as a dependent relative. Essentially, your daughter will be able to re-join the rest of her family. HOwever, she will need to be able to support herself without the help of State funds. She will also have to pay a Health contribution when she arrives as she will not have the benefit of the NHS for five years after she arrives. Here is a link to the visa scheme and how it works and how much is payable in fees https://www.gov.uk/join-family-in-uk/overview
