Bristol have agreed to release the 31-year-old centre from his contract a year early because he wants to spend more time with his family.
Taumalolo told the club's website: "I want to go abroad, I have played in Britain for a long time and I need to go for a change.
"I would love to stay at Bristol but my family is now more important to me."
Taumalolo has played for a number of British sides including Neath, Sale, Bridgend and Harlequins.
