Below is the info stated on the DIBP subclass 489 visa:
Sponsor can be your or your partnerís:
parent or step-parent
child or step child
brother or sister (including adoptive or step brother or sister)
aunt or uncle (including adoptive or step aunt or uncle)
niece or nephew (including adoptive niece or nephew)
grandchild or first cousin

Can I please get some expert opinion on this if I am eligible sponsor for 489?

Thank you very much
You are the sister of your brother-in-lawís partner, so you could be a sponsor, provided you live in a designated regional area.
