Is it true that nurses are not allowed for a transit visa?

I am a Filipino nurse working in Riyadh. I have a booked flight going to Philippines thru emirates airlines but before going to Philippines, I'll stay in Dubai for 4 nights to be with friends.I called the emirates airlines office in Riyadh and asked about the transit visa but i was told that nurses are not allowed to have a transit visa. Is it true? what about my booking? i really wanted to visit Dubai. Lastly, how long it will take to apply for a transit visa?
