The IMU is considered a terrorist organization by Central Asian governments and the United States.
Last month, a Tajik court sentenced six IMU members to up to 19 years in prison.
Tajik police said the two who have been arrested -- a Tajik, Toychi Sharipov, and an Uzbek national, Mahmadnozir Juraev -- are charged with illegally crossing the Tajik-Uzbek border in 2005.
