I am British National living in Portugal aged 78. Am I allowed

This answer was rated:

I am British National living in Portugal aged 78.

Am I allowed to adopt an adult Portuguese ?
If so would that entail the presence in UK of both parties?
Would the adoptee be entitled to both Portuguese and British nationality ?
Thank you for your question.
y name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
I can only advise on Uk law not Portuguese - is this acceptable?

Yes, I only require information on UK law ! Thanks ! K

Then I am afraid that the answer is simple and straightforward - there is no Adult Adoption in the Uk at all
Please ask if you need further details
