My wife needs a short-term visa for Dubai, while in transit from Bangkok to the UK.
She arrives at 13:00 on August 31st and departs at 07:35 on September 4th. If you count each part of a day as a full day, then she is in Dubai for 5 days, ie more than 96 hours. However, if they work to the hour, then she is less than 96 hours. Looking at the VFS website seems to indicate that it is hours, but I have learned not to rely on information from VFS.
