PMP is base on PMBOK a certification base on a knowledge
PRINCE2 is a methodology

Nice, short and simple reply from Vincent.

PMP is not a matter of comparison with PRINCE2. PMP is the name of PMI´s certification. PRINCE2 is a method to preform project management with a project life cycle included.

I agree with my fellow colleagues. I believe Prince 2 is mostly for the UK but PMP is more globally recognized.

I suspect you meant PRINCE2 Practitioner certification versus PMI PMP certification?
(There is also a PRINCE2 Foundation and a PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification.)

The PRINCE2 Practitioner certification has no education or experience pre-requisite, like the PMP. The only pre-requisite to taking the Practitioner certification exam is having one of the following certifications:

PRINCE2 Foundation
PMP
CAPM
IPMA Level A
IPMA Level B
IPMA Level C
IPMA Level D

I always describe Prince2 as a methodology or governance approach that can be used by trained Project Managers in an environment where Prince2 is well understood and adopted.

PMP requires knowledge and experience of other highly relevant topics and skills that a Project Manager needs too.
