    need help with a preposition

    Hi,
    could you help me wth the following sentences please?
    Which one is correct?
    I suppose that sentence 1 is correct.

    1. He has been to Bejing for 7 days.

    2. He has been in Bejing for 7 days.

    3. He had been to Bejing for 7 days.

    4. He had been in Bejing for 7 days.

    I think, both.
    (1) means that he already returned from Bejing.
    (2) means that he is still in Bejing.
