I am an Indian citizen and am travelling from New York to India via Emirates Airlines. There is a 7-hour layover at Dubai international Airport (DXB). I want to visit Dubai for a couple of hours. Do I need a transit visa? If so, how do I obtain one?

    Not a duplicate. The other question is about transiting airside. This question is about leaving the airport during transit. – Michael Hampton Oct 21 '15 at 13:43

You will need to obtain a visa in advance. Nationals of India are not eligible for a UAE visa on arrival.

You can apply for your visa online. After you have booked your flight with Emirates, go to Manage your booking to apply for the visa. When you apply this way, you do not need a visa stamp on your passport.

You will need a transit visa to visit Dubai. Contact with Emirates airline to apply for the 96-hour transit visa on your behalf.
