Do US Citizens living abroad need to fill in ESTA forms?

Do US citizens (passport holders) living abroad need to fill in the online ESTA form in order to enter Switzerland or is this for non-citizens only?

Thanks for clarification.

Re: Do US Citizens living abroad need to fill in ESTA forms?

I am a U.S. Citizen with dual citizenship in a VWP country?

ESTA is not required for U.S. Citizens, and you should always use your U.S. passport to fly to the U.S. If you do not have a U.S. passport, and are using your other passport to travel to the U.S., you will not be able to board your plane without an approved ESTA. But U.S. law requires U.S. Citizens to travel to the U.S. with a U.S. Passport.

ESTA is for non-US citizens (and from those who come from countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program) entering the United States. Never for anyone like a US citizen entering Switzerland.
