Why would "Mijn man staat in België" not be accepted?

In this context you would only use staat if you are at the border and one person (in this case my husband) is physically standing in Belgium and the other (in this case I) is standing on the other side of the border.

In such a case I would specify in English that he is standing in Belgium, rather than just saying that he is in Belgium.
