Interior Ministry experts in Berlin were studying suggestions from the Catholic and Lutheran churches that Germany declare a quota for resettlement by Iraqi Christian refugees, Der Spiegel said.
The magazine said the churches had called for a quota of 20,000 to 30,000.
Currently there are only small numbers of Iraqi Christians in Germany, mostly people who have been caught while illegally trying to migrate along land routes to Sweden, where they have been welcomed.
Many of the Christians speak the Aramaic language.
Iraq's two main native Christian denominations are the independent Church of the East under patriarch Dinkha IV, and the Chaldean Catholic Church under patriarch Emmanuel III Delly which is linked to Catholicism.
