Assunto:  BEEN TO / IN
 
Mensagem:  Plus "been to" suggests there was a movement, the focus is that "you were there" whereas that "BE in" the focus is that you live in city, country, etc, or you are there for a while.  

In the sentences like the following:
In order to do so, they must have been in the United States for more than 31 days during the current year...

The focus is on the time one 'have been' there, not the movement (the fact of going and coming back from there), the trip TO there, etc.
