I am trying to write the acknowledgment section of my thesis. I am trying to say that I have been in this place (the country where I am doing my thesis) for three years.

How to express this:

  1. It has been almost three years in XXXX

  2. It is almost three years in XXXX

  3. Almost three years has been passed in XXXX

I am not sure which form is correct (may be none of them). Thank you for your help.
