The relative must be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or Eligible New Zealand Citizen. The following relatives can sponsor for the Subclass 489 visa:
Brothers and Sisters
Uncles and Aunts
Nephews and Nieces
If you are sponsored by a relative, you will need to live for 2 years and work full time for 12 months in a regional or low population growth area to qualify for permanent residence through the Skilled Regional Subclass 887 visa.
Your cousin will sponsor you and u can add secondary applicants in your application. Like if u want to take your spouse/kids with you, you will be primary applicant in visa application, while your family unit will be secondary applicants.
So, in directly he can sponsor many persons at once.
