The 26-year-old will make the switch to an unnamed Japanese club at the end of the current Super Rugby campaign, having agreed a two-year deal.
Pietersen, though, will still be available to play for the Sharks in the 2014 Super Rugby competition - with his commitments in Japan ruling him out of Currie Cup action.
Pietersen is also hoping to be available for the Springboks before making the move.
