Swiss Living Abroad - How to get a passport online

I am living in Austin, TX and my last passport expired. The nearest consulate is in Atlanta, GA. I wonder if anyone can tell me where to look online if I can apply for a passport online.
Whatever the Swiss govt website says the link is dead and I cannot find any information how to apply for a passport, not an ID card online.

Thanks a lot.

This seems to work fine to me. Didn't go very far in the application process obviously as I'm not Swiss and not in the US, but it does work.

Re: Swiss Living Abroad - How to get a passport online

Am I the only one to find it a little odd that a Swiss expat living abroad (obviously) is asking expats living in Switzerland how they should apply for their Swiss passport renewal?!

EF is for English speakers in Switzerland (or with links to Switzerland), not just expats. It is likely that the OP was born and raised in the United States but still holds Swiss citizenship, needs info in English, went to google and was directed here.

Nothing odd about that.
