¿Ha estado él allí? (Has he been there?)


Explanation:
(Where has he been?) ¿Dónde ha estado él? You can omit the pronoun (él) if you have already specified third person. Ref.: Common phrases.

Explanation:
Has he been here?
¿Ha estado aquí? -> This verb tense (which is the equivalent to the English present perfect), is mostly used in Spain.

¿Estuvo aquí? -> In Mexico present perfect is also used, however this phrase (which is in simple past) is more common and the difference is very slight.


Where has he been?
¿Dónde ha estado? -> Spain
¿Dónde estuvo? -> Mexico

ESTUVO ALLÍ?


Explanation:
I think you are making a question:

Has he been there?
Estuvo allí? (used in Latin American countries)or Ha estado allí? (used in Spain).

You can omit the personal pronoun "él" (it´s better not to fall into "redundancy")

Good Translation!
