need to meet my friend during 5 hours hault at dubai airport

My friend having Indian passport is coming from Melbourne and he has approx 5 hours gap at Dubai Airport for next flight to india.He is travelling by emirates Airways and arrival+departure both from terminal-3 only.

Arrive:13th June,22:20, Dubai Intl. Airport(DXB),Terminal 3

Depart: 03:30, 14th June, Dubai Intl. Airport(DXB),Terminal 3

Please suggest how to meet him. I checked a lot on Transit visa options but it's for minimum 8 Hours hault.It's very urgent so kindly suggest the options.

Here and there

There are no options. He won't be able to get outside the airport without a visa and you won't be able to get in

Your friend is in transit / airside. As he is not passing the border you cannot see him.

This is unless you want to pass the border by buying a ticket and meet him.
