US Citizenship and Immigration Services is asking Congress for $1.2 billion and approval to add a 10% surcharge to its visa application fees, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The agency closed its offices in March and suspended much of its normal work in response to the coronavirus pandemic, cutting off much of its revenue this year. It has requested $1.2 billion in emergency funding from Congress and said in a statement that it plans to use the 10% surcharge to reimburse the money once immigration services resume.
